Mini-Festival Weekend 2021: August 6, 7, 8

This year’s Festival will not be the same as in pre-pandemic times. Still, it will be a showcase of wonderful folk music, and a chance to gather together (albeit in a physically distanced fashion) to celebrate Folk Harbour. We are delighted to present the schedule for the mini-Festival Weekend, as follows:

  • Afternoon concerts will be presented free of charge at the Bandstand in Lunenburg!
  • Evening concerts will be individually ticketed events at the Lunenburg Opera House, and will feature BeòlachLennie Gallant, and Saltwater Songs. Full bio’s to be posted shortly.
  • No Festival passes are being sold.
  • No other stage sites will be operated as in a standard Festival year.
