Festivals and Events

North Cape Coastal Drive music, food and agricultural  festivals take place throughout the spring, summer, fall and winter.  Theatre experiences also abound, from larger productions at the Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside to wildly entertaining community theatre and dinner-theatre shows all around the region.

You can check  our calendar to see what’s going on monthly. In the meantime, here are some of the highlights of our Festivals and Events.

Pride, tradition, folklore, family, stories, music, cuisine, livelihood – when we talk about celebrating the coast, we’re really talking about celebrating an entire way of life. We’re talking about the people of the North Cape Coastal region. And of course we’re talking about where you fit into the celebration equation.
