History of the Killdevil Fair
The Killdevil Fair was inspired by the Good Entertainment Festival which took place at Killdevil in 1978. Organized by Isabella St John, Susan Shiner and Elaine Wychreschuk, this very successful event featured many of the province’s top folk artists. In the spirit of this festival, the Killdevil Fair celebrates the richness and variety of Newfoundland and Labrador’s folk arts.
