We need your help!

This year our Festival is able to bring a number of innovative workshops and events to you virtually at no, or very low cost.  Donations from participants and supporters make this possible.  We greatly appreciate your contributions.


The Mummers Picnic scheduled for Saturday 18 September was unfortunately cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. We look forward to a time when we can enjoy all Festival events in-person again with no restrictions.


Something for Everyone

“Unscripted” has something for you: whether you create with a smartphone, an iPad, or high-end gear; whether you are a wannabe, a social media nut, a hobbyist, or are really good at it! But we have more than fun workshops, digital experiences, and instagrammable moments.  The festival is also jam-packed with music, a kitchen party, a mummers’ picnic,  friends, and more that is fun for the whole family!

COVID-19:  The Unscripted Festival had a changed format for 2020 – all of our workshops and events were virtual! Check out our Facebook and Youtube pages to view our event content from 2020, and view our music performance live streams. Follow our Instagram for updates on the 2021 festival!
