Àros na Mara World Oceans Day Festival

Date: June 8th 2023 until June 11th 2023

The Barra Strait, overlooking the beautiful Bras d’Or Lake, comes alive with festivities acknowledging World Oceans Day, a United Nations-recognized day of ocean celebration and action.

Àros na Mara (Gaelic for House of the Sea) is a flourishing concept to develop a Marine Science Centre at the Barra Strait, for the purposes of research, education, and tourism and is teaming up once again for their 7th edutainment event.

Join our family fun and ocean-themed festival and enjoy scientific and interactive displays, children’s games, and historical demonstrations.

Festival goers can sample an abundance of locally crafted specialties while hearing some of Cape Breton’s finest talent – an event not to be missed.
