It’s the perfect time of year to escape to shoreline and enjoy #TheCityByTheSea! With the opportunity to enjoy city living on the seaside, we want you to live your best #seasidelife this summer enjoying everything from culinary flavours to on the water adventures!
SEASIDE SEAFOOD CELEBRATION

CLASSIC CAR NIGHTS
Does your engine rev over antique and vintage automobiles? Does Summerside have the perfect event for you! Every Friday starting July 1, hit the downtown on Water Street and enjoy Classic Car Nights! Hosted by Downtown Summerside Inc. and Michael’s Pizzeria you can stroll the street chat with other automobile aficionados, and then cap the night off along the water! Fall Back, Atlantic Canada’s premier 50’s and 60’s band, will be there to cover all of your music cravings, Fridays from 6-9 p.m. in July and August (weather permitting).
DINE AL FRESCO
It’s no secret that we love dining outdoors (we wrote a whole guide to it last summer – you can find it here). But this isn’t a guide, but instead some of our favourite ways to enjoy Al Fresco dining while in #TheCityByTheSea!
Let’s start with a picnic! There’s no lack of greenspace in Summerside and a picnic along the water or at the park is the best way to capitalize on enjoying good food and sunshine! Whether you pack your picnic yourself, or you pick one up, eating outdoors is a fun way to experience the waterfront!
Next we suggest enjoying a cold treat on the boardwalk! With Dairy Bars being and Island staple (we have several in the city) why not enjoy your cold treat when you stroll along the boardwalk! Birds will be chirping, a chipmunk might make an appearance and you can get your steps in while you cool off with your favourite flavour!
Dine on the deck! We have multiple restaurants with outdoor seating, including a handful that are right on the water; allowing you to eat right next to the ocean weather you’re eating surf or turf.
