Fundy Sea Shanty Festival ⚓︎


August 12th 3:00 PM to August 14th 6:00 PM
Saint Martins, New Brunswick

The tiny seaside village of St. Martins, N.B., will serve as the backdrop to the first-ever Fundy Sea Shanty Festival this summer.

Proudly presented by our partners Port Saint John, DP World and Envision Saint John, this event will pay tribute to the time-honored east coast tradition of sailing songs and the region’s rich maritime history.

“St. Martins” was a big shipbuilding port, major shipbuilding port, and Yarmouth was a major ship-owning port,” says Eric Ruff, skipper for the group the Yarmouth Shantymen. “The festival will give us a chance to talk about the history of where we come from.”

Sea shanties are traditional tunes that were sung by sailors during work aboard ships and, as Ruff explains, each song has a particular rhythm to match the task at hand.

Be sure to register for the FREE events as well. Bring your QR code to any of the events to admission.

Kids under 12 are free to attend the concerts and Family Activities. Please register for all family.
