The Lunenburg Folk Harbour Society is highly engaged in our community. Our purpose is to protect and expand folklore and folk music traditions by educating and engaging a new generation and contributing in a meaningful way to community development in the Lunenburg area.

That purpose is fulfilled in four ways:

• Educating and engaging young musicians and their families
• Actively working to protect the cultural environment in which we all live
• Contributing to the development of local businesses and other arts organizations
• Offering year-round entertainment options to Lunenburg and surrounding areas

We do not earn a profit; all revenue is directed into these activities. 100% of our senior leadership team (a working Board of Directors) is volunteers. We maintain a small, part-time staff to support financial, administrative and compliance activities.
