Started in 1934, the Pictou Lobster Carnival has become a signature event in Nova Scotia. This three day festival celebrates the end of the      fishing season in the area, Maritime culture and music.

The event features musical entertainment at the Main Stage, a Beer Garden, the Pictou Lobster Carnival Parade, an Antique Car Show, Derby Races, Lobster Boat Races, a Mid-Way, a Children's Parade and many other activities for the whole family.
