FLOURISH Festival announces Expanded 2022 Festival


Fredericton, NB’s FLOURISH Festival is returning to a fully in-person event for 2022 and has shared its initial lineup, announcing Living Hour, Eve Parker Finley, Keeper E, LXVNDR, Diner Drugs, Nick Schofield, and Awala-Wabanaki. With an expanded 5-day festival schedule across 20+ venues, this year’s edition will feature dozens of creative disciplines, including installation, fashion, music, drag, film, and visual art.

Early bird tickets will go on sale on April 20 HERE. The Festival will continue to announce an additional 60+ artists in the coming weeks, so don’t miss that.

“FLOURISH has always been about discovery, and we can’t wait for audiences to connect with new artists and ideas this year,” said Festival Director Jane Blanchard. “Presenting two years of COVID programming allowed us to get creative and gain insight into the many shapes FLOURISH can take. We look forward to carrying those experiences forward with us, as we bring audiences and artists back together.”

On top of the festival programming, FLOURISH will also offer a variety of workshops, including an all-ages beginner drag workshop with New Brunswick-based drag performer, Justin Toodeep. Other workshops will be hosted by programmers, literary artists, music industry professionals, and craftspeople, in partnership with MusicNB, the Maine Arts Council, and Connexion ARC.

Having performed at every edition of the festival so far, Motherhood’s Penelope Stevens joined the FLOURISH programming and coordination team this year:

“FLOURISH is a big part of the cultural identity of our arts community; they’ve done so much to support emerging artists in the city and province, I’m honoured to join their team and help expand the festival this year,” Stevens said.
