Local Festivals & Events Calendar

Welcome to our Local Event Calendar!

Here you will find information about ongoing events and activities in our region. The province of Nova Scotia hosts many events during the spring, summer and fall months and we would like to give our guests the opportunity to participate and/or visit any of these events while they are enjoying their stay with us! 

If you are traveling a certain date and you would like to know if there are any local events or activities that you or your family can participate in, you can find it here.

All events below are listed by date starting in May all the way down till the end of October. This way you will be able to quickly see what is going on in our region! We hope you will be able to enjoy some of these events and activities.

Local Markets:

We have also put together a small list of local farmers markets in the area. These markets are open every summer and are a great place to blend in with the local people of the surrounding towns. On these markets you get a chance to purchase fresh locally grown produce, fresh breads and treats from one of the local bakery's, local arts & crafts and much more! Be sure not to miss out on enjoying a beautiful summer day roaming around one of these markets.
