September 16 to October 2, 2022, we celebrate Northumberland’s creativity and the resilience of its diverse creators, arts organizations and lovers of art as we emerge from difficult times.

Previously we held the festival in Cobourg, but we are expanding to present a mix of live and online events and to take these events to multiple locations across Northumberland.

Actors and artisans, painters and photographers, classical and contemporary musicians, singers and dancers, writers and poets will all be ready to entertain you, to give you an opportunity to learn and be inspired.

Sign up for our blog and you’ll hear all about our planning and pre-festival projects and events.

Artistic and business partners are already lining up to make NFOTA happen.
