Digby has been officially designated as "Home of the World Famous Digby Scallops." With more than one hundred boats registered at this port, we have the largest inshore scallop fleet in the world. Our scallops are second to none.
During the first week of August each year, we celebrate the Scallop Days Festival with a street parade and many activities. We end the last day of the festival at dusk with the Parade of Draggers; the scallop boats are all decorated with colourful lights. A fireworks display over the water closes the festival.
We are proud of our heritage and invite you to take Exit 26 off Highway 101 and visit our waterfront town.
