Festivals

Newfoundlanders love a party, and from the cities to the smallest towns they celebrate their history and unique culture with festivals and events throughout the summer. "Soirees" and "times"—big parties and small parties—offer a combination of traditional music, recitation, comedy, and local food.

Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival. The province's biggest traditional-music festival takes place in St. John's in early August. 709/576–8508 or 866/576–8508. www.nlfolk.com.
