Live Art at its finest; the Lunenburg Arts Fest hosts artists for a weekend of live art work and sales in beautiful Lunenburg, NS! This event takes place on the Fisheries Museum Wharf, Saturday July 15 and Sunday July 16, 2023.

In addition to traditional painting en plein air, non-plein air artists can also register to demonstrate and sell their work in many tented areas on the wharf.

A Studio Tour component has been added this year which invites artists in their studios or galleries within the Lunenburg boundary, to open their doors and join the festival!

As the Lunenburg Art Gallery Society proudly celebrates a BIG 50 year anniversary, we invite everyone to join our celebration at this annual event!

The Lunenburg Arts Fest is an exciting annual painting en plein air event formerly known as Paint Sea On Site, which the Lunenburg Art Gallery Society has successfully hosted for 21 years with the exception of 2020 due to COVID.

General Public Admission as always is FREE!
