Summers End Folk Festival
August 19th - 20th, 2016

The Summers End Folk Festival celebrates music and the arts as well as the closing of the summer season. SEFF is founded on creativity, the arts and bringing music to the community of Grand Manan.

Summers End, now in its seventh year, was started with the hopes of forming the basis of many ongoing opportunities and beginnings as well as a beacon for the arts community on the Island. At the heart of the festival you'll find two things, a love for good music as well as the people of this Grand Manan.

SEFF spans two days, August 19th and 20th 2016. It hosts a wide range of performers, both new and established. This year's festival will consist of 10 performers over two nights in an intimate outdoor setting, just steps away from the ocean.

The Summers End Folk Festival will be held outdoors at Gallaway's, located at 121 Rte 776. SEFF also has a Facebook page and you can buy tickets online on their web site.

The Mananook website is produced by two newcomers to the Island. It provides a personal, and as yet, incomplete exploration of our new home. Check out the official Grand Manan Tourism Association website for more complete information. Credits| Web Design : GEID
