Canada's premier wind-driven event... The Whirligig & Weathervane is the first of its kind in North America and has been judged the "Best Community Event in Nova Scotia" and is a guaranteed "family-pleaser" event

Displayed on the waterfront in Historic Shelburne, visitors will enjoy some of the most inventive creative, wacky and humourous inventions on the continent. Our builders come from near and far to enter their prize creations - Ontario, Pennsylvania, British Columbia - and Nova Scotia!

Visitors to the Festival flock from far and wide also... from all parts of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Maine... from Quebec and Eastern Canada... the west and BC... Europe and Great Britain...  there is so much to enjoy for the entire family.

Plan to join us on September 20 & 21, 2014... for the 15th Annual Festival... Build them and we will come!

P.S. You can see our favourite links and hundreds of photos HERE.
