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. You may also look at the Community Calendar on the main page of our website.
