This is the first year in many years I am staying home and vacationing in Newfoundland. Taking in many of the festivals and events that happen in our province. There are some great things going on in Newfoundland this summer.
Klondyke Days in Bay Roberts, in Conception Bay. On now, and will continue until August 3rd. The Town of Bay Roberts puts off a fantastic 10 days of events for the entire family. Including 3 great tribute concerts, including the Stars of Pop – tribute to Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers for the younger ones. Thunderstruck, North America’s #1 Tribute Band to AC/DC, and Bon Journey, Canada’s favorite tribute band to Bon Jovi and Journey.
The Brigus Blueberry Festival is also just around the corner. The town of Brigus is one of the prettiest places you will ever visit, and this Blueberry Festival is going to be fun. I have already been to Bonne Bay this summer with my nephews, and in August I am looking forward to taking them to Rocky Harbour and Cow Head. In Cow Head is the annual Gros Morne Theatre Festival. The Gros Morne Theatre festival features nightly entertainment consisting of dramatical and musical performances depicting the Newfoundland way of life as well as a reflection of our pass. With the nationally and internationally recognized “Tempting Providence”, “Neddy Norris Night”, “The Ethie Dinner Theatre” and other performances, a night at the Gros Morne Theatre Festival will add tremendously to your visit to Cow Head and to Gros Morne National Park in general.
There’s also Markland Days, the George Street Festival, the Bartlett Celebrations, Rising Tide Theatre, the Stephenville Theatre Festival, Deer Lake Strawberry Festival, and many many more Festivals.
Enjoy your summer!
