Primarily a “coastal festival’ - this is an early summer celebration of the wealth
of artistic talent in an area just south of Halifax, Nova Scotia. The focal point
is our beautiful St. Margaret’s Bay with its iconic Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse. All
around us are other bays, harbours and coves - Prospect Bay, Shad Bay, Head Harbour,
Hubbards Cove and Mahone Bay to name just a few.
We have just completed the 2013 Festival - but you can always find fine art and craft
in this area. Find a list of the galleries or check our Studio Tour page. Access
our on-line Studio Tour Map, good year-round (except for the group shows July 20-21)
by clicking on the map photo. Call ahead to confirm opening hours before starting
out. Music events are often held at local venues such as Paul’s Hall in Glen Haven,
The Shore Club, The Trellis Restaurant and local churches.
We also celebrate our many fine artisans, musicians and performance artists. Concerts,
demonstrations and workshops will become part of the event over time. In this area
so near Halifax, you’ll find over 70 artists living in a wonderful setting where
forested hills meet the sparkling Atlantic Ocean.
Our resident artists live along Highway #333 (Prospect Rd. - Peggy’s Cove Rd.) parts
of Highway #3 (Hubley to East River) and the Hammond’s Plains Rd south of Pockwock
Rd. or on the many side roads leading to picturesque villages. Every year we offer
two weekends of signature events - Paint Peggy’s Cove and a Studio Tour, along with
a feature concert. We plan to make waves on the art scene here in Nova Scotia!
