Cavendish Beach Festival at PEI

Prince Edward Island is one of the three Maritime Provinces of Canada and is the smallest province in both land area and population. However, it is a picturesque location of Canada. There are numerous festivals celebrated at PEI but the most popular among them is the Jazz and Blues Festival.


The Cavendish Beach Music Festival is a music festival held in mid-July. Cavendish is a resort community located 39 kilometres northwest of the provincial capital Charlottetown. The festival’s inception was noted in 2009. The inauguration of the festival was a three-day event that featured major acts like Rik Reese and Neon Highway, Tim McGraw, Big and Rich and Reba McEntire. The event also held acts including Paul Brandt, Doc Walker, and Deric Ruttan.

Country music superstar Taylor Swift took the stage on July 2010, the third day of the festival where approximately 35,000 people were in attendance.

Since then, the music festival has gained a lot of popularity among locals as well as the tourists.
