Ours will be an International Sea Shanty Festival anchored in the village of St Martins, NB, during 12-14 August 2022. These festivals are huge in Europe. We felt it was time that we showed the world how well we could host such an event.
Our mission is to recognize and celebrate the stories and songs of those sailors who helped forge nations during the age of sail, and to promote the history and beauty of the St Martins area. This will be the only festival of its kind in Atlantic Canada.
