Nova Scotia Festivals & Events

NOTE:  The current situation with COVID19 remains a concern.  I will update the dates for festivals as soon as they become available and the plans for 2021 are clearer.  Stay safe!

Nova Scotia is well-known for its awesome festivals! Great music, great food, great dancing, magical cultural activities, getting up close and personal with's all here!

This is what festivals in Nova Scotia are all about!!

a little tip...

If you are in an area and you don't see anything on my calendar, then simply ask a local if anything is going on or check the community boards in the local post office or grocery store...

chances are...something is happening close by!!

I have listed the 'must-see' Nova Scotia festivals on this page.  They all sound great so check the dates and make your choices!!
