Burin Folk Arts Council

The Burin Folk Arts Council is a regional organization that is dedicated to the preservation of the folk arts heritage of the area. Their staple event is the annual Burin Peninsula Festival of Folk Song and Dance which they host to actively uphold the musical heritage of the region and of the province, to showcase traditional songs, music, and dances, and to provide a venue for these arts to be passed on to the younger generation.



Burin Peninsula Arts Council

The Burin Peninsula Arts Council was established in 1973, the same year the Burin Highway was paved, thus ending some of the isolation of many of the region's communities. It saw the beginning of bringing Community Circuit Shows to our region, and the building of a strong relationship with the St.John's Arts & Culture Centre. BPAC members and its many volunteers are from various parts of the peninsula
