THE GATHERING: Fire, Food & Music is a growing festival in Burlington, Middle Arm and Smiths Harbour. Celebrating Newfoundland culture and cuisine, it is slated for August 24-26 in 2017.
The three-day festival’s Facebook page states that 2017 tickets are available for purchase.
Headed by well-known actor and comedian Shaun Majumder, this festival brings together a wholesome combination of artists, chefs and down-to-earth outdoor activities. Bonfires, crowds, shows, food, music are all just “over the ridge” in Burlington each summer.
The festival sees hundreds of people each year. The reviews on past years are long in (from the Festival’s Facebook Page).
“Just back from The Gathering and I must say it was a wonderful event…”
“Music – Music was excellent. Great local artists and the sound was spot on for the most part…”
“Had a great time for the second year in a row! The Chef Hike, Shed Crawl and Comedy Show were great. Life at tent city is a blast!”
The Gathering started in the summer of 2012, as part of an initiative to build a sustainable local tourism economy. All proceeds from The Gathering ticket sales go back into the community in support of development projects by ‘OME, a local social enterprise.
