As part of this year's Festival on Fire, the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador is compiling a list of community events surrounding one of the province’s most colourful holidays.
Since 2008, HFNL has been working to safeguard and sustain the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Newfoundland and Labrador for present and future. The list of bonfire night celebrations is just one part of the foundation’s new Festival on Fire, to take place at the end of October and beginning of November.
We will be planning a series of events around Bonfire Night traditions. But to start, we want communities to contact us about any Bonfire Night events they already have planned.
