Lunenburg Venues: The Bandstand

During the afternoon, the Lunenburg Festival offers simultaneous concerts and workshops at numerous venues (including several churches), all within easy walking distance as long as you don't mind a few hills. Our favorites daytime venues were located on either end of King Street, the bandstand up on the hillside and the wharf down along the quay. All of the evening performances took place in the main tent, located in a park overlooking the town and its twin harbors.
