Living Our Traditions
The Newfoundland & Labrador Folk Arts Society (NLFAS) is a charitable organization located in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada whose mandate is to celebrate, preserve, and promote the traditional and contemporary folk arts of our province at home and away, through public outreach and events, including our annual Folk Festival.
Active since 1966, the organization presents educational and cultural events that provide artists with the opportunity to showcase their work and that engage our youth and the general public in the transmission of our intangible cultural heritage.
Our two longest running events, Folk Night at the Ship Pub and the Annual Newfoundland & Labrador Folk Festival are rites of passage for up and coming folk and traditional musicians, and beloved by seasoned performers.
Early Bird Passes for the 48th Annual NL Folk Festival presented by Equinor are all sold out! – Check back here on March 1st at 12 PM for all your NL Folk Festival ticket needs!
