In just six years, SappyFest has emerged as one of the most exciting and acclaimed independent music festivals in Canada. Run by artists for artists, SappyFest has developed its fanbase and reputation through innovative programming that focuses on creativity and community. The festival’s uniqueness lies in combining the atmosphere of a folk festival, with an eclectic, contemporary lineup, set against the backdrop of Sackville’s historic downtown. The main stage is presented in the centre of town on the core commercial street, with smaller adjacent venues including an outdoor bandstand, art deco theatre, turn of the century church, Royal Canadian Legion, and a haunted roadhouse, all within walking distance. For three days at the height of summer, this picturesque little maritime town comes alive with a diverse program of independent music complemented by visual art, contemporary dance, readings, a small press fair, screenings, and street market.
Passes are available online now at They are also available at any Ticketpro outlet, or in Sackville at Thunder & Lightning Ltd. (6 Ford Lane, Sackville, NB).
