Port Williams, known as the "Biggest Little Port in the World" was founded in 1760 and grew as an agricultural community. Today it is home to over 1000 residents and it is still a thriving agricultural community.

It is also a place for the visitors to our area to check out as it is one of the best places to observe the vertical rise and fall of the world’s largest tides, and a great place to see the booming cliffs of Blomidon.

Every year on the second Saturday of June the little community of Port Williams celebrates its heritage and culture with the Port Williams Days. It is a great celebration sponsored by the Port Williams Lions Club.

The day is started with their community-wide yard sale. Over ninety households and business take part in this gigantic yard sale so there are lots to choose from. The sale includes a book sale, a pantry table and even booths set up by local businesses like Porter's Meat Market.

Of course the Lions have their canteen set up along with other food vendors. Don't forget about the very tasty fireman's barbecue held at the Community Centre.

In the afternoon make sure to watch the children's parade and then head over to the Old Fashion Fun Fair and Petting Zoo. They may even have the Mock Jail set up, if there is someone you want to see in there.

Even the pub gets involved by decorating up and providing entertainment. They may even transform their multi-purpose room into an intimate setting where you can sample local wines, beers and hors d'oeuvres.

There is sure to be demonstrations, presentations and lots of entertainment for everyone at the Port Williams Days.

Make sure you check out the Village of Port Williams Web Site for dates and a schedule of events.
