A Town for All Seasons

So much to see and do in all seasons. Spring and Winter offer a chance to see our historic buildings without being obscured by filled out trees and shrubs, coupled with an extremely temperate climate.

Summer holds promise of warm nights perfect for cruising the bays, rivers and lakes and our Festivals – NS Folk Art Festival (not happening in 2021), Folk Harbour Festival and Craft & Street Fest.

Fall is truly a special time in Nova Scotia, warm days, cool nights as well as spectacular colours make cycling, hiking, beachcombing, kayak & canoeing a pleasure.
