Sails, Tales & Off the Rails July1-9






Mayor's Welcome

Welcome to our historic waterfront town of Port Hawkesbury where there is so much to “Sea and Do” this summer for Festival of the Strait 2017!

Our town has the kindest and hardest working residents and business people, the most beautiful harbour, and a proud, rich history, culture and heritage.

The Festival of the Strait Society and Town staff work diligently to plan and host a fun-filled festival for visitors and residents of all ages. Enjoy the food, sails, and tales at our waterfront everyone!
