There’s no shortage of reasons to celebrate, perhaps just a shortage of time.
- Plan & Book
Sometimes you don’t want to celebrate just one thing. The Trails Tales Tunes Festival in Gros Morne National Park offers a fabulous mix of outdoor entertainment and activities. If you’re looking for world-class cuisine to go with your entertainment, Elliston’s Roots, Rants and Roars, and The Gathering in Burlington combine celebrity chefs with music and storytelling.
Live theatre in Newfoundland and Labrador is a big deal, with annual festivals in Gros Morne and Trinity Bight. If you like a bit of Shakespeare, the Shakespeare by the Sea productions in St. John’s and Perchance Theatre’s season in Cupids will be right up your alley.
Folk music festivals take a traditional kitchen party to a bigger stage. The Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival, which has been running for more than 35 years, takes place at Bannerman Park in St. John’s. With almost as long a history, the family-oriented Fish, Fun and Folk Festival is held in the charming seaside town of Twillingate.
In Labrador, the Bakeapple Folk Festival is a celebration of local heritage and the bountiful harvest of the bakeapple, complete with singing, dancing, and food.
The height of summer is a grand time in the capital city, with an 11-day stretch of festivals and fun including the historic Royal St. John’s Regatta, a family-friendly Buskers Festival, the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival, and the lively George Street Festival.
