Established in 1997 in honour of the late Canadian folk singer and songwriter Stan Rogers, the festival bills itself as "an international festival of songwriters", showcasing Canadian and worldwide grassroots musicians in all genres. The festival has won a number of East Coast Music Awards and attracts over 10,000 music fans each year.
The Stan Rogers Folk Festival takes place on the first weekend of July. This has been a tradition ever since the first festival in 1997. The festival was cancelled in 2014, less than a week before it was scheduled to begin, due to the expected arrival of Hurricane Arthur.
