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.

“PEI Nature Inspires Craft”, this year’s Celebration of Craft exhibit, will feature fine craft inspired by PEI’s natural history. The inspiration pieces include birds, plants, nests, fossils, bones, etc. “PEI Nature Inspires Craft” will showcase the wide variety of craft produced on the Island. This exhibition is mounted in partnership with the PEI Crafts Council, with the support of Innovation PEI. All are welcome to attend the official opening on Sunday, June 9th at 2 pm. This exhibition will be on display until October. Eptek Centre will also be hosting a special, one-night only, art exhibition featuring the work of a group of early learning students on Tuesday, June 18th at 6 pm. The Reggio Art Exhibit will display artwork created using the Reggio Emilia approach, a student-centered educational philosophy that uses self-directed, experiential learning in relationship-driven environments. There is no admission fee for these two opening events and refreshments will be served. The on-site gift shop carries only Island art and craft, as well as books on local themes. Be sure to visit the permanent exhibition on the history and architecture of Summerside, too. Admission is by donation. Eptek Art & Culture Centre is a site of the Prince Edward Island Museum and Heritage Foundation and is located at 130 Heather Moyse Drive on the Summerside waterfront, adjacent to the Harbourfront Theatre.
