Getting Screeched In

How to become an honorary Newfoundlander and Labradorian

Newfoundland and Labrador is a place full of love for our province and pride in our heritage. For those born out of province (known as ‘come from away’s or mainlanders) it is hard to ever be labeled Newfoundlanders or Labradorians. There is one thing, however, that come from away’s (or CFAs) can do in order to bestow upon themselves the hallowed title of honorary islanders.

"A Newfoundland Kitchen Party"

The Entertainers

The "Newfoundland Kitchen Party" has always been a popular idea with visitors to Newfoundland and Labrador.  Expatriates have fond memories of kitchen parties from living here as children or have heard about the parties from their relatives. Other visitors hear about the famous tradition through local culture, advertising and other mediums.

According to heritage.nf.ca, The tradition of household entertainment continues to thrive, and on a Saturday night, makeshift jam sessions still unfold in kitchens, living rooms and basements around the province.”

Included with the Woody Island tour package is an old-fashioned kitchen party. Our party involves live entertainer with a guitar, an accordion, and even an ugly stick or two thrown into the mix.
