PEI 2014 Activities

The activities marking the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference will include a mix of historical commemoration and revelry that would make the Fathers of Confederation proud. The “sesquicentennial” will begin and end with special New Year’s Eve festivities and fireworks. The summer months – always brimming with special events and festivals – will take on even more significance this special year. The Confederation Players will portray conference delegates – roaming the streets of Charlottetown, talking colonial politics and debating the pros and cons of union. The 2014 celebrations will also include larger July 1st and Canada Day weekend events. Then from July through September, a “celebration zone” at Confederation Landing will feature concerts, food, interactive history and exhibits. This leads to Founders’ Week in late August-early September, when tall ships will sail into port and the Feast of the Fathers will recreate the grand balls and formal dinners attended by delegates to the Charlottetown Conference.

activitiesTo provide a flavour of the Island scene 150 years ago, the Confederation Players will be roaming the streets of Charlottetown, itching to discuss colonial politics and debate the merits of a union.
