As part of Mi’kmaw History Month in Nova Scotia, you are invited to attend the upcoming 2016 Wagmatcook Arts & Culture Festival scheduled to take place at the Wagmatcook Culture & Heritage Centre from October 11-14, 2016. You, your organization (& staff), your schools (& students) as well as your friends & family are more than welcome to take in any one of our events that target the sharing of our beautiful Mi’kmaw culture, history, dance, songs & stories.
***SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT*** This year we have been working very hard on a very special project that will highlight the work and musical genious of the late Peter Frank Bernard of Wagmatcook. After releasing an album of his folk songs in 1979 he tragically died in a house fire in 1981 with plans to release another album later that year. Through the support of his family and the community we have organized 5 local Aboriginal musicians that have worked together with the very well known musician and composer Mr. Scott Macmillan to learn his songs and play them for everyone as a live concert during the opening ceremonies on the morning of October 11th as well as a full concert on the closing ceremonies on the evening of October 11 with a full dinner show. We ask you to spread the word and please inquire for more information.

I have also attached the full updated schedule on a PDF file wagmatcookartsfestivalfestivalposterupdated-schedulefinal2016 for your review and look forward to seeing you at our events! Please share within your contacts and communications networks. Please note: For larger groups, we ask you to please register ahead of time as some of our events are very well attended and so we will be accepting larger groups on a first come, first serve basis.
