Seacap Park

This large green space occupies an entire block, only meters from the town’s shopping district. This central open area often hosts large events throughout the year, with the Harmony Bazaar and the Rock Festival being among them. The Lighthouse Stage officially opened during Sea Derby weekend in 2010, and the covered seating area is augmented by the presence of the nautically themed play park, which provides hours of entertainment for children of all ages.

Some of the park’s features include a lighthouse slide, a wharf with ladders and tire bridges, and a lobster boat picnic area.

Lockeport Sea Derby

Lockeport Sea Derby is Nova Scotia’s longest-running derby. Come for a weekend of family fun and fishing.

The Derby is a community-based event, with its roots deeply woven into the culture of the Ragged Islands area. It has been a tremendous success since its start in the 1990s.

By working in conjunction with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans the derby has become a sustainable event that minimizes damage to any local fish populations.

June

Come and experience the Lobster Capital of Canada during Shelburne County’s Lobster Festival.

Enjoy a weekend full of family fun activities, events and of course, lots of lobster! Our festival is held every June since 1986 to celebrate the end of our Lobster season (November to May) and to recognize the importance of our lobster fishing industry to the economy, history and culture of Shelburne County.

The Shelburne County Lobster Festival has received provincial recognition (TIANS 1991 Festival Award and the Recreation Nova Scotia Community Cooperation Award in 1989) for its community-based approach to events planning and the cooperation that exists among the various communities involved.

This public schoolhouse was made into the Little School Museum in 1967, depicting life in the 19th and 20th Centuries of coastal Nova Scotia.

They were built in 1836,1841 x 2, 1846, and 1876.
