Peggys Cove Area Festival of the Arts

The beauty of The Peggy's Cove Region inspires many artists, be they painters, potters, sculptors,  woodworkers, etc. Art studios dot the roadways in the region but are often hard to find. Many artists work from their homes or use the great outdoors as their studio. The purpose of this festival is a celebration of art presenting opportunities for you to meet a large gathering of artists and view and purchase their wonderful work.

Due to COVID-19 and on-going essential restrictions, the comprehensive annual Peggy's Cove Area Arts Festival has, with regret, been cancelled; instead, an exhibit featuring local artists will be held this month at the SMB Community Enterprise Centre at the Tantallon Crossroads. 
Please note on the attached brochure the dates and times of the Arts Show, running from July 10-25. COVID-19 protocols will be observed. 
You are cordially invited to support these very talented area artists. Please view the exhibit at your convenience, and choose a local treasure! Purchases may also be made on-line at
Enjoy these pleasant summer days, keep well, and stay safe.
