Description & Services

Information This unique festival is dedicated to "sustainability". It is a fun and colourful introduction to the idea that all people can live within the Earth's means, while meeting their basic needs. The Festival features exhibitors and vendors, educational activities, delicious farm-fresh foods, and lots to do for children and youth. Admission for most activities is free! 
Ever wondered how people power their cars on veggie oil or make their own clothing from scratch using recycled materials? Enthusiastic community members, organizations, and businesses are there to show you how you can do it all yourself using the best of traditional and modern techniques. The Festival is organized by the Town of Bridgewater, the District of Lunenburg, and community volunteers, organizations and businesses.  
The event grows every year, with over 1000 people attending the street fair alone! 
Would you like to get involved as a volunteer or partner organization with this year's event? We are always seeking volunteers and partners! The Festival couldn't happen without the help of enthusiastic community members.
Dates A 4 day annual event held late August please contact for exact dates!
