About the Area

The Maritime Fiddle Festival is held in the community of Dartmouth in the Halifax Regional Municipality.

It is one of the world's perfect places. With over 400 km of dramatic coastline, white sand beaches, and one of the world's largest natural harbours, it's no wonder life here revolves around the sea. But there's so much more.

From city streets to lazy afternoons by the ocean, it's all here in the Halifax Regional Municipality. Steeped in history, rich in culture, and refreshingly cosmopolitan. For over 250 years Halifax has been a world class place for business and pleasure. Fine dining. Great music. Fashionable boutiques. Whimsical craftshops.

The Halifax Regional Municipality is an international urban center with a rural cachet. It bustles and thrives with all the energy and amenities of a capital city but within minutes of the city core the area offers the small coastal villages, country charm, and wilderness for which Nova Scotia is known. Nearby the festival location is the Shubenacadie Canal and Shubie Park Campground so you can enjoy nature, urban energy, and the festival all in one trip.
