Scenes from the 2019 Riverfront Jubilee


NEW GLASGOW, N.S. —

"This festival is amazing. So much community spirit," said veteran Jubilee volunteer, Shaun Bond. Bond has been volunteering with the Riverfront Jubilee for 21 years, and can't choose which year he's liked best. "It's really hard to pick one that's been my favourite." 

It was around 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 3 when Bond and nearly 49 other volunteers were getting ready for the night to start. 

While he spoke, Pictou County's Leah Samson and Niki Campbell from The Collective were belting out lyrics to their debut single on the main stage, and the night was just getting started. 

"There's been a lot of music that's come out of here," said Michael McNeil of Stellarton.

McNiel is the lead singer of Moon Logic who played the mainstage just after The Collective finished their set. 

"Tonight felt good. Toward the end of the night I felt we were really getting cooking. More people filing in, and I sweated up a storm like I always do," he said laughing. "It was really fun."

With acts like Ria Mae, Wintersleep, Trooper, and Sass Jordan to name a few, this year's Riverfront Jubilee was one for the books.
