The Rollo Bay Fiddle Festival was created to preserve Prince Edward Island’s tradition of music. Today it celebrates a history of successful growth for 3 decades. Every year, during the 3rd weekend of July, our festival continues to feature top Atlantic Canadian performers. Over the years musicians like Natalie MacMaster, Ashley MacIsaac, Richard Wood, Troy MacGillivray, Jerry Holland, The Chaisson Family, The East Pointers and many others have performed on our stage.
Our festival draws fans both young and old from around the world. July 15-17 will mark our 40th anniversary.
If you’re planning your summer’s get-a-way in eastern Canada you won’t want to miss our festival and music camp. It is the perfect spot for the whole family. We have modern on-site facilities and the best traditional music you’ll find anywhere.
Our hearts are full of joy and happiness today because of all the wonderful people who helped the 40th Annual Rollo Bay Fiddle Festival happen: The Volunteers who worked so very hard, the festival patrons who supported live music, the Artists who came from near and far, our families who supported Big Field Traditions, the many professionals & businesses who donated their services and financial support to our Festival, and everyone who participated in the music camp - THANK YOU!
Today is also bittersweet. We are remembering our Father, Brother, Uncle, and Grandfather, Peter Chaisson. After a successful weekend, we pause today to reflect on what Peter has done for traditional fiddle music in Rollo Bay, Prince Edward Island, and beyond. We know you were with us this weekend, we could see the signs everywhere. Thank you Peter for all you've done for us ❤️
