The Buzz — Prince Edward Island's Guide to What's Going On is a free monthly magazine about art, culture, photography, music, live bands, ceilidhs, concerts, festivals, theatre, books, poetry, community events, and more.

Our website has been live since 1995.

The Buzz is distributed year-round through approximately 350 pick-up points across The Island in such places as coffee shops, grocery stores, news stands, libraries, restaurants, hotels, motels, night clubs, information centres, convenience stores, retail stores, Holland College and UPEI. The Buzz is distributed Island-wide.

70% to Charlottetown and Queens County;
15% to Summerside and Prince County;
15% to Montague and Kings County.

In the tourist season this number increases as seasonal businesses open. In July and August the number of pick-up points reaches 550 or more, including all PEI Provincial Visitor Information Centres and many local tourist information outlets.

From September through June, 12,500–16,000 copies are printed and distributed each month.

In July and August, 25,000–26,000 copies are printed and distributed.

There is a low return rate each month from most locations (0% - 2%).

Convention and meeting organizers regularly request copies for delegate packages.

The effectiveness of distribution points is monitored regularly and adjustments are made to increase the supply to the busiest points. In downtown Charlottetown, distribution points are re-supplied weekly. New locations for distribution are regularly sought out.

PEI RESIDENTS PLEASE NOTE: If you are having difficulty finding a copy of The Buzz, please contact us 902-628-1958 and we will tell you about a pick-up point near you.


The submission deadline is usually the 15th of month prior to publication. All press releases and public service notices should reach us by this date.
