Signature Event
Things really start to heat up on the Island in the spring and people are entertained all across PEI until October with ceilidh's, theatre, indoor and outdoor concerts, family friendly exhibitions, culinary events and more.

Unfortunately, many of our signature events have been cancelled due to COVID-19 operational guidelines and advice from PEI's Chief Public Health Office.

While things will look a little different, we still have some great events that we don't want you to miss. The listings you see below are just a taste of the Island events still being offered safely in 2020.
