Folk Art Festival
- Folk Art
The Nova Scotia Folk Art Festival is held on the first Sunday of August every year (except when August 1st is Monday, then it is held July 31st) at the Lunenburg War Memorial Arena. Produced and run by volunteers, the event benefits Nova Scotia Folk Artists and the Lunenburg Heritage Society
The Nova Scotia Folk Art Festival is a fund raising initiative of the Lunenburg Heritage Society. This juried event showcases the art of 50+ Nova Scotian folk artists working in wood, metal, fibre, paint, pencil and found items. A volunteer committee oversees the festival on behalf of the Heritage Society and the artists.
The festival has grown from 20 artists in a field in Blockhouse in 1989 to 50-60 participants in recent years. Collectors from all provinces, the USA and Europe mark their calendars for the first Sunday in August.
