Àros na Mara World Oceans Day Festival


June 2nd to June 5th
Iona, Nova Scotia

Àros na Mara is Gaelic for House of the Sea.  Our festival runs form June 2 to June 5th. World Oceans Day will be celebrated on Sunday, June 5th from 12-4 at the Iona Port and surrounding area.   This is our 6th year acknowledging and celebrating the world wide UNESCO designated event.   We consider this a special occasion for Cape Breton Island’s own participation in the world-wide event.  The purpose of our informative and celebratory event is to heighten public awareness, general acknowledgement and appreciation about the fundamental value the Bras d’Or Lake possesses for all Nova Scotian’s. We need to protect the Lake from litter and other waste. Festival goers can sample locally crafted specialties while being entertained by some of Cape Breton’s finest Celtic performers.
