Festival Information Centre

The Community Enterprise Centre (CEC), located at Unit 1, 5229 St. Margaret’s Bay Rd, Upper Tantallon is the Information Centre for the Peggy’s Cove Area Festival of the Art. Normally open only on weekdays between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., the CEC is open the same hours as Paint Peggy’s Cove on the first weekend, and the same hours as the Studio Tour on the second weekend of the Festival. Studio Tour Maps and information about Festival events are available.

July Members’ Show

In addition to being open for both weekends of the Festival, the PCAFA Members’ Show runs from July 2 to July 31, and helps to keep a little of the Festival energy going throughout the month.

The Members’ Show at the CEC is an opportunity for PCAFA members to show one piece of art at Location #1 on the Studio Tour. If the artist is also on the Studio Tour, that one piece of art is marked with their tour location, and can be a great way to encourage community members to visit that studio stop to see more! And for artists who are not otherwise on the Studio Tour, it’s a way to make sure they — and a taste of their art — are included in the tour.

100% of proceeds from art sold goes to the artist.

All members of the PCAFA are invited to exhibit one piece of art in the July Members’ Show. Use the link below to register your art. If you have any questions, please contact Sharon at [email protected].

Volunteering Opportunity

We recognize that the July Festival weekends are already very busy for PCAFA members, but artists who are not on the Studio Tour have a great opportunity to take a 3-hour shift at the CEC during the Festival, to meet with community members on the tour. Volunteers work in pairs, with our goal being to pair an artist with an art appreciator for each team.  Please contact Sherrie Redden if you are interested in taking a volunteer shift at [email protected].
