Festival of Small Halls

We celebrated the return of the Festival of Small Halls!

With more than 50 performances through 14 days in June, in almost 40 rural community halls, the Festival of Small Halls is a critically acclaimed traditional music and dance festival that had toes tapping across the Island.

Held in June throughout the entire province, the Festival of Small Halls brings exceptional shows to treasured places many Islanders have not yet discovered. Many performers returned to the small communities and rural stages where they danced their first jig or plucked their first string.

Recognized in 2009 as an East Coast Music Award nominee for "Event of the Year", the Festival mixes music and dance from PEI's rich Irish, Scottish and Acadian cultures, along with the Island's proud tradition of singer-songwriters and the popular genres of bluegrass and old-time country. A wonderful medley of roots and old time music will take place in ancestral rural halls of all shapes and sizes.
