More about us

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.

Between festivals, 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 current on-line Studio Tour Map, most of which is good year-round, by clicking on the map photo on the right hand side of this page. 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.

Studio Tour

Our resident artists live along Highway #333 (Prospect Rd./Peggy’s Cove Rd.) parts of Highway #3 (Hubley to East River)  Highway #329 (Aspotogan Peninsula) and the Hammond’s Plains Rd. south of Pockwock Rd. Keep in mind the many side roads leading from these arteries to other picturesque villages.

Every year we offer two weekends of signature events - Paint Peggy’s Cove and a Studio Tour, along with a feature concert.
