Festival Spotlight: Kempt Shore Festivals

Kempt Shore Ocean View Campground is a gorgeous twenty-acre site in Kempt Shore, Hants County with 800 feet of sandy beach frontage on the beautiful Minas Basin at the mouth of the Avon River.

This is the site of the Acoustic Maritime Music Festival, held the third full weekend of July, when we present a variety of world class music to fans. Everything from blues, folk, country and jazz to Texas swing, all done through microphones as much as possible and not electronically augmented, allowing the artists to show their special talents.

New this year is the Pickers & Songwriters Campout, August 23 – 25. A fun and informative weekend featuring mentored guitar picking, songwriters’ and painting workshops, open mics, and main stage band and artist performances.

The Kempt Shore Ocean View Campground is open for camping June 1 to September 30 and has serviced (water/electric) sites and hundreds of un-serviced sites, free hot showers and flush toilets. The views and sunsets are gorgeous, there is a health clinic across the street, and a quarry lake, a perfect place for a swim two minutes away. Surf fishing for striped bass is done from the beach. The campground offers a back-to-nature experience.
