Harmony Bazaar Festival of Women & Song is the only women’s music festival in Atlantic Canada. Our festival began in 2005 out of the recognition that many festivals program a disproportionate number of men. We wished to create a space for female singer songwriters to showcase their original works. We started out as a small event and with the encouragement of the East Coast Music Industry, our audience, performers, and sponsors we are now an industry recognized full day festival.
“The Harmony Bazaar Society exists to promote female artists and song. It recognizes women as change agents, builders and promoters within our communities. The Society builds community spirit, pride, and social capital. The Society hosts a summer festival, a winter music series, and educational workshops and events.”
