The Festival of Small Halls may be all over, but the fun is just beginning. Now that we have had a taste of entertainment on Prince Edward Island, it is time to look at the summer’s events.
The Cavendish Beach Music Festival runs from July 4 to 6. It will feature Lady Antebellum, David Nail, Blake Shelton, Darius Rucker, Hunter Hayes, Dean Brody, and many other artists, on three stages. The festival has been running since 2009 and is the premier country music event in Prince Edward Island. If you have not yet booked your accommodations, go to http://peiplay.com now to look for rapidly disappearing vacancies.
On August 30, Shania Twain will be here to close off a summer of celebration. The reserved grandstand seats are almost sold out but there are still some general admission tickets. As with the Cavendish Beach Music Festival, book your accommodations early.
Canada Day is right around the corner. We promise to have the biggest fireworks show in Canada this year. We also promise to have top notch entertainers like the Barenaked Ladies, Tegan and Sara, Classified, David Myles, Roch Voisine, George Canyon, and Drum.
The Big Red Music Festival runs June 28, June 29 and July 12. This year, we are proud to bring The Killers to Charlottetown. Check the full lineup on their site.
The 2014 celebration will include Natalie MacMaster and The Barra MacNeils on July 4.
The Jazz and Blues Festival runs August 21-23. It will feature many artists including the legendary Downchild Blues Band.
July 24 will also see Guess Who’s legendary Burton Cummings coming to Prince Edward Island.
Of course, our great local talent will be playing all over PEI during the summer. So if you are looking for Down East music, storytelling and toe tapping tunes, there will be plenty of choice.
Be sure to include some entertainment on your trip to Prince Edward Island this summer.
