The New Founde Lande Trinity Pageant

Conceived and written by Rick Boland & Donna Butt
Directed by Donna Butt

The anchor event of our festival, the pageant takes you on a journey through the town of Trinity. The whole summer company will entertain you and enthral you every step of the way. You will meet an array of colourful characters as our past unfolds in story and song. You will long remember Dustabella Durdle’s first winter here, Peter Easton and his band of pirates, the Minister consoling his parishioners at St. Paul’s Church, the raucous mischief of the old travelling court, the heart wrenching stories of hardship and privation, and above all the strength, courage and humour of our people. And you will surely sing the Ode to Newfoundland as you bid farewell to a great and grand recreation of our cherished past. For 21 years, the Trinity Pageant has been hailed by all who see it as a moving and joyous tribute to our beloved New Founde Lande.

Showtime is 2pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays beginning outside the Trinity Visitor Centre. Please prepare for the possibility of inclement weather. As it is an outside walkabout, proper footwear is suggested, and we cannot guarantee that walkers and wheelchairs will always have an unobstructed view. If you have special requirements, please contact our box office.
