We can’t speak about Festival Players without singing the praises of Prince Edward County – known locally as simply ‘the County.’ Come explore the County with us – we move from village to village throughout the summer, presenting theatre in truly inspiring venues.

The County is an island community on the shores of Lake Ontario with a proud United Empire Loyalist heritage. This beautiful place has a way of capturing hearts and imaginations with a combination of rural calmness and authentic sophistication.
With a vast 1000 square kilometers to explore, the County has so much to offer. The main towns of Picton, Bloomfield and Wellington offer one-of-a-kind shopping, farm-to-table food experiences and accommodations that range from country charm to ultra-chic.
On the rural routes, you can sample the 30+ wineries in our emerging wine region, stop at a farm and pick up some fresh produce, visit an artist in their studio or gallery, or just get lost in the beautiful landscapes. White sand beaches with towering dunes are a huge attraction at Sandbanks Provincial Park.
