Happy Canada Day!

Although we can't be together as in past years to celebrate Canada Day due to Covid-19, we still want to wish everyone a great July 1 holiday with friends and family!

FESTIVAL CANCELLED Returning in 2021

After many weeks of consultation, it was unanimously decided on Monday, May 12 that all community summer festivals under the PEIAE be cancelled for 2020 due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic, which includes the PEI Potato Blossom Festival scheduled for July 15-19 in O'Leary. With so much uncertainty around the pandemic and when large gatherings in Prince Edward Island will be able to resume, it was not possible for any events to plan a successful festival. Although the PEI Potato Blossom Festival will not take place in 2020, presentation of awards presented every summer at the Farmers Awards Banquet will take place at a later date, either virtually or in person should large gatherings be permitted. Details to be released in the weeks and months ahead. For a list of other festivals across Prince Edward Island that have been cancelled, please visit the PEI Association of Exhibitions website at The Festival looks forward to returning in 2021!

West Point Lighthouse

A must-visit destination for 2011, the renewed West Point attraction boasts many updates to ensure your visit is one to remember. Topping the list of enhancements for this year are:

  • The Lighthouse Museum, with new displays among an extensive collection of lighthouse artifacts
  • The renovated and expanded Inn with new furnishings and fixtures, featuring a walk-out deck with every room that overlooks the Northumberland Strait
  • Enhanced dining experience with local products and seafood while overlooking the West Point harbour
  • A 1,500m boardwalk along the dunes and interpretive trails meandering though this unique environment
  • The re-appointed Light-keeper’s suite, restored to its former elegance.

And then, of course, there is the beautiful beach with lifeguards, the Cedar Dunes Provincial Park, the West Point Craft Shop and the expanded marina all waiting here for you.
