A Festival Celebrating our Cultural Wealth
featuring art in the most amazing places

Grand Opening

In October, the historic town of Parrsboro becomes the canvas for a vibrant and diverse festival in celebration of maritime cultural richness. ’10 Days in October’ featured artists of both local and international renown, as well as events and cultural programming unique to the spectacular Bay of Fundy.

The idea for the festival was hatched in 2014, culminating in a showcase for regional art hosted by Art Lab Studios and Gallery.  Watch the promo video.

’10 Days in October’ offers a rich palette of experiences for many tastes: A town-wide exhibition of artists who capture Nova Scotia’s diverse geography and multi-faceted spirit in their work.
