Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia is a beautiful waterfront community nestled in the Annapolis Valley. Originally inhabited by a strong Mi’kmaq community, in 1605 the area became home to some of North America’s earliest European settlers.
The Annapolis Royal area has gained a reputation as a vibrant centre for cultural activity, and over the years it has become a magnet for visual artists, craftspeople, performers and writers.
We’re proud of our many well-preserved heritage buildings that make up one of the loveliest streetscapes in the country. We’re also pleased to be recognized as a community where volunteerism is alive and well.
