The ugly stick has played a role in Newfoundland party times throughout the years. It’s about four feet long, on which bottle caps, tin cans, small bells and other noisemakers are attached. Add a boot at the bottom and you're good to go! It is played by thumping the stick, and striking its attachments with a "saw"--a notched stick that really gets those bottle-caps rattling!  Build an ugly stick at one of our two workshops and make mad mummer music at the Mummers Parade.

BYOB: Bring your own boot (or sneaker)!

Workshops are free. $10 suggested donation. No registration. Just come on in! Space is limited and based on first-come, first-served.


For ages 10 and older. There must be one supervising adult for each child under 16 years of age.


Groups larger than 8 participants will need to notify the Festival at least a week in advance to confirm availability. To do so, email us at
