We’re taking a weekly look at something or some place we love in Nova Scotia! Follow along each week this summer as we celebrate well known favourites and local hidden gems.
Like the deep dish to Chicago or smoked meat to Montreal, Digby scallops are one of Nova Scotia’s mandatory ‘when in Rome’ experiences. World-famous for fresh, melt-in-your-mouth sea scallops, tourists and locals from across Nova Scotia flock to Digby every summer to witness this delicacy first-hand, raving to friends and family upon returning home.
As a small coastal fishing town in southwestern Nova Scotia with a population just over 2,000, Digby also happens to deliver big on scenery, in addition to seafood. With its waterfront lining the shores of the Annapolis Basin, the area offers a fantastic vantage point for observing some of the highest tides in the world along the Bay of Fundy coastline, all while enjoying succulent scallops from the sea below.
While tourism season kicks off in Digby around this time of year, here at Trampoline, we’re holding out for Digby Scallop Days, a four-day festival occurring every August that boasts Digby’s delicious scallops, lobster, local musicians and more. Of course, this boasting is tastefully executed in true Nova Scotian style, which is to say, with friendly hospitality and plenty of smiles to go around.
With part of the Tramp team attending the festival last year and returning with fresh, delicious scallop gifts to share around, it’s safe to say that most (if not all) of us will be heading down to Digby this August to eat our hearts out. So, as we mark August 10-13 in our calendars, we figured we’d give you all a heads up, too.
See you there?
