Since its inception in 1980 the Bakeapple Folk Festival has a history of endurance. Each and every year, no matter what hurdles may arise, the show goes on — thanks to a team of dedicated volunteers and loyal sponsors.

From wind-flattened tents in the early years, through times of torrential rain and poor berry harvests, to the recent global pandemic... when August arrives in the Labrador Straits it's always Bakeapple Festival time!
