Vote for the Arts

Confederation Centre of the Arts is the province’s leader in performing arts, visual arts, arts education, and heritage programming.

Through the arts we help thousands of Islanders and visitors alike gain a deeper understanding of the origins and evolution of our country, and what it means to be Canadian today. 

Now is the time to remind candidates from all parties just how important the Centre is to the province and to the country! 🗳

Our Apologies

We are so disappointed to have to cancel tonight’s performance of The River Clyde Pageant – our first cancellation in our five year history! We are so sorry to the audiences who missed out on tonight’s show. We wish we could accommodate everyone, but also must adhere to current guidelines for outdoor gatherings on PEI. Thank you to everyone for your understanding. Here’s to clearer skies tomorrow!
