Premier’s Message

On behalf of the Province of Nova Scotia, it is my pleasure to welcome you to North River for the Cabot Trail Writers Festival, an event filled with stunning landscapes, award-winning authors, and talented musicians.

Nova Scotia is a province rich in history and heritage, providing endless material for the creative writer. Such stories featuring our great province are the reason that Nova Scotia is on the map as a premier travel destination for visitors the world over.

Festivals like this are a great opportunity to showcase these talented artists, while further promoting all the great experiences that Nova Scotia has to offer. Whether you’re familiar with Nova Scotia or visiting for the first time, I encourage you to get out and enjoy our great food, warm hospitality, and breathtaking scenery, starting right here in North River.

Thank you to the organisers and sponsors of this year’s event. Enjoy the festival and please come visit us again soon!


Darrell Dexter, QC, MLA
