The Sea Harvest Festival 

July 21-28, 2019 : Northern Cape Breton : Cabot Trail : Nova Scotia
The Sea Harvest Festival
Seafood - Music - Culture


The Seawall Trail is a proposed, multi-day hiking trail along Northern Cape Breton's Highland Coastline in the Pollets Cove-Aspy Fault Wilderness Area.


The Trail Route is as old as the Island and was once frequented by First Nations and featured several Gaelic communities. 

The current communities surrounding the Seawall Trail mirror the past and make their living upon the oceans, farmlands and highlands. 


Come celebrate our culture in the week long Sea Harvest Festival with community events ranging from local musicians, guided tours and Cape Breton Seafood.
