We've got good
reason to celebrate!

A history shared. A future together. 

In 2023, the Town of Pictou celebrates a convergence of two major anniversaries - the historic 250th anniversary of the landing of the Ship Hector and the 150th anniversary of the incorporation of the Town of Pictou. Throughout 2023, over 20 community organizations will host events that acknowledge our past and celebrate how far we've come. We welcome you to visit this site often for event updates, and to learn more about the change makers who shaped our community.
