Community Events

Holyrood has one of the best yearly schedule of events on the island! Our Recreation Department does a great job of balancing our Community Events so they are not jammed into our week long festivals. Whether it’s Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Canada day, or just a regular weekend Holyrood always has great activities for all age groups to enjoy!

As each season approaches, the Town of Holyrood distributes a seasonal Community Guide with all programs, events and related town information.For a complete list of Town Events please see the link below to view our Fall 2017 Activity Guide or see all events listed below.
