There can be some pretty entertaining events going on here, or it can be more or less lifeless. It is best to check ahead to find out what is happening first. In summer it usually has a musical or two running.

The art gallery at the Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown is small, delightful, and welcoming, with diverse local exhibits. We went in a February, late on a very snowy Sunday afternoon, to be welcomed in by the front desk staff. The art on display was interesting - some we liked, and some we did not. There was also...

This company went out of the way to accommodate us. This was not their season, yet they provided a walking tour for two. The woman doing the tour came to us dressed in full costume which along with the surrounding buildings gave us a feel for what the era was like. We did this first thing in the morning off... More

I'd not been in Mavors before it was a very good choice. They had a good selection of red wines, and I took full advantage of the wintertime promotion that was underway. I ordered a sweet potato corn chowder that was excellent, served with fluffy mashed potatoes and root vegetables. The special included a chocolate dessert that I offered to... More

My family and I have never had a bad experience at the Confederation Centre of Arts. There is not a bad seat and the sound is spectacular. There is nothing we don't have on our little island including top notch musicals and plays. Come and see for yourself and enjoy the island way.
