Digby Scallop Days, the area’s longest running festival, is a celebration of scallops, the scallop fishing industry and the people who brave the seas to harvest them.  Digby Scallop Days is celebrated over a three day period starting on Friday and ending on Sunday. Every year the festival has a different theme, but the focus of the festival always remains on the local scallops and the fleet that harvests them.

Scallops from Digby are known worldwide for their delicious taste. All local eateries serve Digby Scallops, and whether they are seared, fried, or in a chowder, you will find them to be a succulent treat.  Let us serve you fresh scallops at our Digby Scallop Days Barbecue.

Watch our Grand Street Parade, visit our vendors along admirals walk, see locals compete in the Scallop Shucking Competitions.  Learn more about the industry through a scallop shucking demonstration or boat gear demonstration.  You can even try your hand at shucking a Digby Scallop. A Woodsmen Competition and Scallop Days Car Show & Shine wind down the weekend which wraps up with a Ceremony of Flags, Live Entertainment and a fireworks show Sunday evening.

For the full events program see the events tab or pick up a festival booklet available at local establishments leading up to and during the Digby Scallop Days festivities.

We sincerely hope you enjoy our festival and return for many years to come.
