2021 Folk Fiesta! Winter Series Concerts.
Our annual fundraiser event, Folk Fiesta!, typically consists of presenting 3 artists to a fully packed venue with food and silent auction. This year we’re dividing that entertainment across 3 weekends to still support multiple artists and greatly limit audience size to comply with Covid regulations for safer events. These LIVE shows will take place at 7:30 pm at the Lunenburg Opera House. These three concerts will also be video recorded for online presentations at later dates (details below).
Live at the Lunenburg Opera House
Saturday, March 13 for Shannon and Tony Quinn (snow date of Sunday, March 14)
Saturday, March 20 for Ben Caplan (with a snow date of Sunday, March 21)
Saturday, March 27 for Darren, Rachel and Chrissy of Còig (snow date of Sunday, March 28 )
All 3 concerts are also being streamed online at later dates. Please read further below for dates and times.

We work hard to bring you music all year long. Our concert series features a range of established and up-and-coming artists, both local and out-of-province. We strive to present four concerts in the fall and four in the spring. Our venues change throughout the town but the calibre of performers on stage is consistently top notch. You can expect smaller venues with unique and intimate performances with the artists as well as larger venues offering a bigger musical experience.
