Friends and Members of the Society

What is a Friend of the Society?

Friends of the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Society (LFHS) are individuals who contribute funds to the Society to support its cultural and educational objectives. If you become a Friend, your contribution supports year-round community cultural and educational initiatives of the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Society including:

  • Internationally renowned Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival (LFHF) – The Festival has presented some of Canada’s most noted folk performers, launched careers, and earned a stellar reputation.
  • Concert Series – An off-season staple in Lunenburg
  • Folk Fiesta! – Our annual fund raiser at which Festival performers are showcased
  • Jim Pittman Awards for Youth
  • Lunenburg and District Music Festival Folk Class Scholarship Awards
  • Summer Concert Series throughout July and August

Your donation is for the calendar year. However, if someone becomes a Friend after our new fiscal year (October 1), it will be deemed to be in effect for the following calendar year.

Not a fan of paying online?

If you would prefer to make a donation in person rather than online, please visit the contact page and fill out the form indicating which level of support you are pledging along with the contact info as requested. Someone from the Society will contact you to confirm your support and arrange for payment.
