Welcome to my Blog about PEI. Granny has many things on her plate and has asked me to take over this blog. This seems like it will be an exciting challenge and I look forward to bringing you closer to a Prince Edward Island vacation.
For the past few years, there has been one major event that highlighted the tourism season. There was Regis and Kelly, 100 years of Anne, The Summer Games, Will and Kate, etc.
This year there yet seems to be no major event. However, there are still plenty of reasons to visit Prince Edward Island. The Tourism website breaks it down into major categories.
- Arts and Culture
- Authentic Experiences
You may want to plan your visit to PEI based on one or more of the “regular” festivals and events. Check out this year’s list that includes new Highland Storm in Summerside and new Summerfest in Charlottetown.
Don’t underestimate the Festival of Small Halls. You can get see outstanding local talent for a good price in a kitchen party type of venue. This year’s events will be announced any day so be sure and check the website. Mark June 14-24 on your calendar if you are planning a late spring visit to PEI.
