(Site update Spring 2020)

Welcome to the Summerville Art Festival

Join us for a festival of art, nature and community

The community of Summerville on the Kingston Peninsula, across the Kennebecasis River from Saint John, is one of New Brunswick’s best kept secrets. Beautiful, unspoiled and rich with tidal estuary wild-life, Summerville also has an artistic heritage few communities of its size can claim. A surprisingly large number of prominent artists have lived and worked there and many still call it home.

This caring people of Summerville will once again come together to celebrate art and community. Our tiny community displayed phenomenal spirit in May when neighbours and friends helped each other during the devastating floods that impacted so many. Although we are a small community of just a few hundred, Summerville will once again pull together to welcome guests from across the county to come and celebrate our rich history of artists, both old and new.

The celebration of this heritage will take place in residents' homes, their back yards and beaches in pop-up galleries on a mile-long stretch of Route 845. We welcome you to join our celebration.
