Our Vision

NFOTA celebrates the creative spirit of Northumberland. As a not-for-profit arts organization, NFOTA brings together actors and artisans, painters and photographers, musicians, singers, writers and poets in a grand collaborative showcase over two weeks in September 2022.

We believe art should be inclusive and accessible to all, creativity is unlimited and collaboration makes a community strong.  In venues across the region, we’ll be ready to entertain you, to give you opportunities to participate, to learn and to be inspired.

How to get involved


NFOTA is 100% volunteer run, so we are always looking for people with time to spare and skills to share. Whether you want to give just a few hours or head up an entire project, work from home or collaborate with others, tell us how you’d like to help by filling out our volunteer form below.

In early 2023, we are especially looking for people to keep our social media channels active and help with grant writing. We need bloggers, video makers, interviewers, proofers, organizers and researchers, as well as people familiar with WordPress. Contact us.


Keeping ticket prices affordable and paying our artists and technicians means we depend on cash and in-kind contributions from individuals, organizations and businesses. Sponsorships can be negotiated to fit your needs and pocketbook. Contact us.

Land Acknowledgement


It is a great privilege to share art, stories and learning on this beautiful territory, which has been the site of human activity for many thousands of years.  

Northumberland Festival of the Arts respectfully acknowledges that this event takes place in the traditional and treaty territory of the Mississauga and Chippewa Nations, collectively known as the Williams Treaties First Nations which include Curve Lake, Hiawatha, Alderville, Scugog Island, Rama, Beausoleil and Georgina Island First Nations

We respectfully acknowledge that the Williams Treaties First Nations have been stewards and caretakers of these lands and waters, and that today remain vigilant over their health and integrity for generations to come.

As an organization and as individuals, we at the Northumberland Festival of the Arts are in a process of learning how we can be better treaty partners.
