Some of the best artists representing traditional and contemporary folk music, from both near and far, will grace stages throughout picturesque Lunenburg. Between salty breezes and sweet harmonies, you will quickly discover why we’re Nova Scotia’s longest running folk music festival.

Or visit stages around town, from the picturesque Lunenburg waterfront to the main stage on the top of Blockhouse Hill. We offer a range of single tickets, afternoon passes, day passes and full festival passes. People 25 and under save 50% on ticket prices!

The Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival is a rich music and cultural experience that offers something for all ages.

Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival is the 2018 ECMA, Event of the Year Award Winner!

We would like to give a huge thanks to all of our volunteers, sponsors, donors and performers, all of whom, provide so much to the Festival year round to make the event possible. Winning this award would not have been possible without you.
