Peggys Cove Area Festival of the Arts

The beauty of The Peggy's Cove Region inspires many artists, be they painters, potters, sculptors,  woodworkers, etc. Art studios dot the roadways in the region but are often hard to find. Many artists work from their homes or use the great outdoors as their studio. The purpose of this festival is a celebration of art presenting opportunities for you to meet a large gathering of artists and view and purchase their wonderful work.
The annual Festival takes place July along the Peggy's Cove Road from Peggy's Cove to Upper Tantallon and around the Aspotogan.
