A series of summer concerts held every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights throughout the summer months. They are put on predominantly for tourists in an attempt to share the music and culture of our area with people who visit from around North America and all over the world!
Drinks are available at the bar, and it's a fairly informal yet entertaining evening of storytelling and song that would be sure to delight anyone visiting our area!

The main street of Pictou, called Water St.
is very narrow with lots of traffic so it was made a ONE WAY street! Every year there are countless tourists who don't follow the street signs and end up endangering everyone in their path. However, locals expect this to happen and are always ready to guide you in the right direction!

Souvenir shopping. Gift shops are all over town and stuff is ridiculously overpriced. Only tourists shop there because locals can't afford it! Although things such as t-shirts and local products are worth the money, please don't waste your money on those silly Sou' Wester hats,collector spoons, magnets or pens. If you must, go to our local dollar store, which has a wide selection of things like that- for $1 each!

Favorite thing: The town of Pictou is renowned as the 'Birthplace of New Scotland'. It was here that the first Scottish settlers landed in 1773. There were 189 passengers who boarded the Hector at Loch Broom in Scotland and dared to make the journey toward a new life in Nova Scotia. The arrival of the Hector marked the strengthening of Nova Scotia's ties to the heritage and culture of Scotland- a connection that would continue to grow and contribute greatly to the development of Nova Scotia over the next two centuries.
