Northumberland Festival of the Arts Begins Friday, September 16!

NFOTA opens with Celebrating Resilience. Come join in the fun of our opening ceremonies for NFOTA’s sixteen days of arts events all over the county. We are honoured that National Poet Laureate, Louise Halfe – Sky Dancer will open the festival and share her thoughts and poetry.

Enjoy performances by Ted Staunton and Friends, What Fun!, Jessica Outram as well as a Premier Public Screening of “Arcadia”, a multi-art genre story by Dimitri Papatheodorou, and a chance to visit two art exhibits at the Art Gallery of Northumberland. Meet some of our artists, sponsors and organizers and enjoy an entertaining kick-off to NFOTA 2022.

You can register or buy tickets up until the start of each event.
