2023 Fundy Sea Shanty Festival

August 11, 2023 from 3:00 pm - August 13, 2023 from 6:00 pm

Port Saint John and Envision Saint John proudly present the 2023 International Fundy Sea Shanty Festival! Hosted by The St. Martins Chamber of Commerce, it’s the only festival of its kind in Atlantic Canada.

Sea shanties are traditional tunes that were sung by sailors during work aboard ships and each song has a particular rhythm to match the task at hand. Anchored in the charming fishing village of St. Martins, New Brunswick, this event is a celebration of the sailors who helped shape nations during the age of sail. With a thrilling lineup of music, food, and entertainment, this event is the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the rich history and culture of the maritime region.

You’ll be treated to a diverse range of musical performances, featuring local and international talent. Sing and dance along to traditional sea shanties, folk songs, and other maritime melodies.

But the festival is not only about music – it’s also a chance to indulge in delicious food, enjoy toe-tapping, and knee-slapping fun, and immerse yourself in the past and present highlights of the stunning coastal Village of St. Martins. Whether you’re a history buff, a music lover, or simply seeking a fun and unique experience, this festival is not to be missed. Mark your calendars, grab your tickets, book your getaway, and set sail with us on August 11!
