Description

Explore the historic Shubenacadie Canal Marine Railway with free guided tours every Saturday throughout July from 12:00 to 4:00 pm.

Between 1861 and 1871, the marine railway carried boats and barges overland between Dartmouth Cove and Sullivan’s Pond, from which they could sail through the rest of the canal to the Bay of Fundy. Visitors will have the opportunity to go inside the flume house, a full-scale modern replica of the building that powered the railway complete with re-creations of the gears and machinery that made the system run. Tours are free of charge, but donations to the Shubenacadie Canal Commission are welcome.

Accompanying the tours will be live and local music:

July 6: Aucoin Duo: Celtic fiddle and piano duo

July 13: Riley and Chloe: Irish Celtic fiddle and piano duo

July 20: Brian Hiltz: Hiltz plays the hits, from 50's covers to modern-day hits

July 27: Up with Gaelic! Traditional Cape Breton/Scottish Gaelic fiddling tradition
