WE ARE OPEN TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY, 10AM UNTIL 5PM.
Standing on its own picturesque wharf in an iconic fishing community, the Quidi Vidi Village Plantation is a unique marriage of cultural interpretation and contemporary craft creation. Built to reflect the fishing stages and fish plants that have occupied the site since the 1600s, the Plantation is a modern adaptation of traditional craft instruction.
The Plantation will serve as a craft enterprise incubator for emerging artists wishing to pursue careers as professional craftspeople in Newfoundland and Labrador. Ideally situated in the fishing outport of Quidi Vidi Village within the city limits of St. John’s, the Plantation will also function as a destination for those wishing to explore a unique corner of one of the oldest cities in North America.
Visitors to the Plantation are welcome to watch, interact with, and support our craftspeople as they produce unique handmade items in a wide variety of mediums.
The building also houses the office of the Quidi Vidi Village Foundation and archival collection. You won't find a more enthusiastic and welcoming group of people anywhere, so please stop in to say Hello!
