42nd Annual Digby Scallop Days

Rich in flavour, succulent to taste and treated like royalty in Nova Scotia; the scallop is world renowned.
In Digby, there is a whole festival dedicated to this historical shellfish. For 42 years, the Town of Digby has been hosting the annual Digby Scallop Days. As one of the offical event sponsors, we invite everyone to our Nova Scotia resort, to experience scallops first hand!
This year the scallop festival runs from Friday Aug. 5 until Sunday, Aug. 7. with three days chalked full of events, fireworks and scallops!
From a scallop shucking competition, scallop gear demonstration to a pet fashion show, you can't miss this annual Nova Scotia event.

Admiral Digby Museum
July 5, 2016
The Admiral Digby Museum is a historical home converted into a museum, with rooms filled with archives and artifacts that relate to Maritime and Pioneering history. This includes ship models, navigational equipment and photographs.
The museum was named after Rear Admiral Robert Digby. It is one of the oldest standing structures in Digby, made with horsehair plaster and shortened doorways. The first floor of the house holds an original 1870 organ, a 1909 Phonograph and finally an 1890’s handcrafted grandfather clock.
Up the old staircase, the second floor houses vintage clothing, documents, ledgers, artifacts and models. A lot of these documents allow visitors to track their family history and learn about Digby’s enriched past.
Our Nova Scotia resort plays a huge part in the history of the Maritimes and the town of Digby with our property having been purchased by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1917.
