SappyFest 9

About

SappyFest is a little independent music festival produced annually in Sackville, New Brunswick.

SappyFest 8 will take place on August 2-4, 2013.

The SappyFest Mainstage site is a combination of two large tents, beer garden, merchandise market and uncovered open space with a capacity of 2000. The site is located in the heart of downtown Sackville, on Bridge Street, closing down the main commercial thorougfare while creating a vibrant, high-profile epicentre for the festival.

Side stages are all within walking distance and include a free outdoor bandstand, art deco movie house, turn of the century church, and a Royal Canadian Legion.

Now a registered non-profit organization, SappyFest Incorporated, the festival was founded in 2006 by the good people of Sappy Records. At the time it seemed like a more feasible way to get all our friends together than a wedding, and certainly more fun than releasing records into the ether.

We hope you can make it out.
