City of Summerside – Experience our City

Prince Edward Island is known around the world for its sandy beaches, rich culture, and diverse culinary offerings. The City of Summerside has all those things and more. We are the second-largest city in the province and the primary service centre for the western part of the island. The city is named for an inn owned by George Linkletter II, called Summer Side House

With a trip to Summerside, you’ll enjoy stunning ocean views, acres of green spaces, unique shopping experiences, world-class theatrical and musical performances, and more.

Visitors to Summerside enjoy the amenities of a much larger City, only on a smaller scale and with a bit more charm. We truly have something for everyone.

Signature Events

Our successful record of providing signature entertainment events has been, and continues to be, remarkable. Summerside has had the great fortune to host a very wide variety of events, from world-renowned performers such as Elton John, Sting, and Jerry Seinfeld, to signature regional, national, and international sporting events such as 2009 Canada Games, RBC Cup, Grand Slam of Curling Players Championships, Hockey Day in Canada and many more.
Sport Tourism events complement our signature entertainment events to enhance the scope of our mandate. Signature entertainment events dovetailed with our primary focus of Minor/Amateur Sport Hosting will position Summerside as a year-round tourism destination. The stabilizing force in our tourism sector continues to be the growth in regional event hosting at the minor and amateur sport levels. The ongoing growth in this sport tourism segment continues to show immense ROI to our community.

Sporting Events

Host Your Event in one of Atlantic Canada’s Premier Sport Destinations. Tens of thousands of athletes, coaches, and parents have participated in sporting events in the city of Summerside. Sport Tourism is important to our city and as such, we continue to invest in growing our sport offerings. This is evident with the construction of our $43M Credit Union Place.
