With more than 50 performances over 14 days in June, in almost 40 rural community halls, the PEI Mutual Festival of Small Halls is a critically acclaimed traditional music, storytelling and dance festival that will have your toes tapping across the Island.

Recognized as an East Coast Music Award nominee for “Event of the Year” in 2011, 2012 and 2013, and winner of the Music PEI 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Event of the Year, the Festival mixes music and dance from PEI’s rich Irish, Scottish and Acadian cultures, along with the Island’s proud tradition of singer-songwriters and folk tales.

Held annually in June, the PEI Mutual Festival of Small Halls brings exceptional shows to treasured places many visitors and locals alike have not yet discovered. Many Island performers will be returning to the small communities and rural stages where they danced their first jig or plucked their first string. A wonderful medley of roots and old time music will take place in cherished halls of all shapes and sizes, found down back country roads and along breathtaking coastal drives.
