The Annual Holiday Wassail at George Street United Church is scheduled for 2:00 pm on Sunday, December 17, 2017!

The lineup includes the Bob Macdonald Trio, Michelle Noftall with Craig Young, Julia Bryant, the Mummers and the Paupers, the STEP Fiddlers, the Antle Sisters, the Kubasonics, and the Sizzle Sisters!

In addittion to mummers, carols, sing alongs, and tunes, we will have wassail, raffle, a chance to win Festival tickets, artist and NLFAS merchandise and the folks at GSU will be accepting non perihsable food items for their food bank. Plus it’s early, family friendly, affordable and it usually sells out…so…y’know…

The doors open at 1:30 and the Wassail runs from 2:00 to 4:30 pm with a short intermission and refreshments. All proceeds from canteen sales go to benefit the Jimmy Pratt Memorial Outreach. 

Kids 12 years and under are free when accompanied by an adult and tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. We don’t expect many to make it to the door. They usually don’t, so be advised!

Each ticket stub has an email signup that you can fill out (in advance) and be entered into a draw for two 2018 Folk Festival passes. We will also have a simple raffle at the event featuring a grab bag of gift certificates from local supporters, concert tickets, folk night passes and 2018 Festival passes!

Tickets are available at the NLFAS office at Suite 206 223 Duckworth between 9:00 and 3:00 Monday to Friday. That is the second floor of the building between Moksha Yoga and Bernard Stanley restaurant. Please feel free to call 576-8508 to ensure that someone will be here when you arrive as we may step out and miss you if you just show up.

And, we have them on sale at O’Brien’s Music Inc..on Water St. until the end of day Saturday, December 16th.
