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.

The Ellis Family Band have performed music since the 1970’s. The band consists of four brothers, Brian, Rick, Steve and Dave Ellis and long-time friend Greg MacDonald. They have enjoyed success with all 20 of their Nashville recorded single releases reaching the national country music charts. Their success garnered them an international recording contract offer in the 1980’s. Strong family roots and a love of their home province, Prince Edward Island made them re-evaluate their musical goals and they decided to return to PEI. The Ellis Family Band have talked about doing a Christmas show for many years and after enjoying celebrating the season with their family in the audience last year, they are returning for another show at the Celtic Performing Arts Centre in 2019! The show will include some of their original hits and a number of the family’s favourite Christmas songs.
