3 Best Performing Arts Venues in The Eastern Shore and Northern Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia

deCoste Performing Arts Centre

The center presents a summer-long program of concerts, dinner theater, comedy, pipe bands, Highland dancing, and ceilidhs with Gaelic music and dance. Past headliners have included acts ranging from k.d. lang to the Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

Marigold Cultural Centre

This sweet 208-seat theatre and gallery space hosts plays, concerts, and cultural events showcasing regional performers (as well as amateur and local theatre groups). Concerts range from popular Canadian folk artists to Celtic bands to cover bands and on occasion you get to see these performers in a much more intimate setting than they might usually play.

Ship's Company Theatre

Top-notch plays, comedy, and a concert series are presented from July through September at this three-stage facility. At its heart is the Kipawo, a former Minas Basin ferry that was transformed into the original floating theater in the 1980s.
