The Annual Southern Shore Folk Festival was started in 1986. In 1995 the Southern Shore Folk Arts Council (SSFAC) re-focused the Festival to take on a more traditional Newfoundland / Irish flavour. From those efforts was born the Shamrock Festival.
The Shamrock Festival has attracted great interest from both musicians and the public alike and has achieved significant growth since its inception. Annual improvements to the Festival Site, combined with an outstanding lineup of performers, positions the Shamrock Festival as one of the top music Festivals on the Island.
So, if you're in the mood for the best in Newfoundland hospitality and entertainment, check out the annual Shamrock Festival.
