Rollo Bay Festival Grounds

The Rollo Bay Fiddle Festival has been sharing, celebrating, and preserving the traditional sounds of PEI and Atlantic Canada since 1976, when founders Joe Pete Chaisson and Bishop Faber MacDonald rolled a flat bed truck onto a potato field and hosted performances for the surrounding community. 

Their intention was to protect the rich history of fiddle music on the Island and instill its spirit into future generations. Over four decades later, the third generation of the Chaisson family is carrying on the tradition.

Performing are Vishtèn, Shane Cook, Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards, Chrissy Crowley, Richard Wood, Kindle, The Chaisson Family, Cynthia MacLeod, Seán Gray, Ward MacDonald, DOC, Ryan McKasson & Eric McDonald, Queen’s County Fiddlers, Mel Parsons, Meaghan Blanchard, Dara Smith & Adam Young, Hélène Bergeron & Louise Arsenault, Teresa Doyle, and the Chaisson Trio.

Visitors are encouraged to join in activities like open jams and square dances during the festival. Whether you’re camping onsite or staying nearby, you’ll experience the best of Eastern PEI’s beautiful landscape, hospitality, and of course, its treasured traditional sounds. 

Festival takes place July 13 to15 in the Big Field in Rollo Bay at 961 Veteran’s Memorial Hwy, Souris.
