This year’s conference venue is Sherbrooke Village!

Every day is an adventure and a trip back in time as Nova Scotia’s 19th century heritage is brought to life for visitors of all ages by costumed interpreters in 25 original heritage buildings including blacksmiths, potters, wood turners, weavers and printers.

Come back in time to the boom years when shipbuilding, lumbering, and gold mining dominated the local economy. You are invited to “Step into 1867” each day during summer months at Sherbrooke Village for a Victorian experience. Dress in period costume or immerse yourself even further by taking on one of a variety of characters available for the day.

Our activities, workshops, learning programs, weekly concerts and schedule of special events make it easy to get your hands-on history all summer long! Open May 18 to October 14 from 9:30 am to 5 pm.

Visit us 45 minutes south of Antigonish at exit 32, on Highway #7 or 3 hours east of Halifax. Call us for more information at 1-888-743-7845, or visit us at: for regular updates or online at
