Mermaid Tears Sea Glass Festival

This year’s Sea Glass Festival will look a bit different

Be sure to stay tuned for information on what is happening for 2021!


The Mermaid Tears Sea Glass Festival is the largest sea glass festival and was the first ever in Canada. The festival is held on the LAST full weekend in July each year – be sure to save the date. It celebrates Sea Glass AKA Mermaid Tears. The festival is now being held in the scenic community of Souris, in Eastern Prince Edward Island, Canada. Starting Saturday and continuing on Sunday you can visit the vendor fair of sea glass artisans and crafts, stop and play Seaglass bingo, listen to live entertainment, tour the Souris Lighthouse, and on Sunday enter into the Shard contest to win money, as well as many other activities for the whole family! From the festival grounds you can walk to the heart of this historical town, visit the Matthew McLean Historium, tour the many shops, enjoy some local cuisine and watch the ferry arrive or depart that connects PEI to the Iles de la Madeleine. Please explore our website and plan to make this truly unique experience part of your summer!

No ATM machine will be on site – 2 banks within a

short driving distance.
