Cavendish Beach Music Festival began in 2008 when Jeff Squires, now President and CEO, realized a deep need for investment in the Cavendish area during slower visitation periods. What was once a cow pasture in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, is now the home of the largest multi-day outdoor music festival in Atlantic Canada – the Cavendish Beach Music Festival. More than 70,000 visitors annually flock to the festival for the biggest names in country music, camping, dining, the warmest waters north of the Carolina’s and to create memories that last a lifetime.
