Lawnya Vawnya: An Exposition of Independent Art & Culture is a non-profit music and art festival that merges some of Newfoundland and Labrador’s strongest artistic talent with national and international acts. We support local artistic endeavours, particularly music, and are involved in facilitating the exchange of skills and knowledge between artists and audiences through performances, workshops, panel discussions and cultural events in diverse environments.

 

Lawnya Vawnya gets its name from an old Newfoundland expression meaning “to have a good time at a dance or a party with plenty to eat.” It is a good time by the sea.

 

Lawnya Vawnya was awarded ‘Best Music Festival on the Avalon’ (The Overcast People’s Choice Awards 2015 & 2016) and was nominated for ‘Outstanding Company of the Year’ (MusicNL Awards 2017).
