Charlottetown Festival

June-October
The Charlottetown Festival is devoted entirely to musicals by Canadians. Held from mid-June through mid-October on Prince Edward Island, the festival presents three full-scale musicals every year. One of these is always Anne of Green Gables, a story about rural life on the island at the turn of the century, written by island-born novelist Lucy Maud Montgomery. In fact, Anne of Green Gables was the first musical presented at the festival when it was founded in 1965.
The festival also offers plays for children, Sunday evening pop concerts, and a series of short plays and musical events. The full-scale musicals and most of the festival's events are held at the Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown, the capital of Prince Edward Island.
