PEI 2014

Prince Edward Island and all of Canada celebrated an important chapter in our history in 2014, as we marked the 150th anniversary of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference - where the idea of Canada, as a nation, was proposed. The Island hosted a spectacular year-long tribute to the beginning of this great country and welcomed visitors to join the festivities. Part of downtown Charlottetown was turned into a "celebration zone" where visitors could follow the steps of the Fathers of Confederation, and experience daily concerts, food tastings, children's activities, and historical presentations. Each province and territory in Canada was given the opportunity to showcase their local food, culture and history, making this a truly Canadian celebration.
