Nova Scotia Summer Fest

When: Aug. 23-24 2019

Antigonish County's late-summer sendup has a title so all-encompassing it feels like an attempt to capture the spirit of the season itself. With a blend of camping, hiking, seafood, beer gardens and live music (more on that in a sec) it's essentially distilling all the elements of a quintessential Nova Scotian summer into a tidy two-day sesh. Attendees can expect sets by the likes of Great Big Sea alum Alan Doyle, Classified—the east coast's answer to Eminem—and the legendary, trad-steeped Heather Rankin, among others. See for more.
