Destination Cape Breton is coordinating, with municipal partners, a simultaneous Island-wide party to celebrate the latest Travel + Leisure Magazine designations as #1 Island Destination in Continental US & Canada, and #3 Island Destination in the world!
On Friday, July 22nd, from 2-4 pm, each municipality is hosting an event showcasing the unique elements that make Cape Breton #1. The CBRM event will be held adjacent to the Civic Centre on the Esplanade and will feature cultural entertainment and a performance by J.P. Cormier & the Elliot Brothers. On site will be a ‘speaker’s corner’ type video booth, where residents can congratulate Cape Breton on these accolades.
Other celebration sites include:
Inverness: Margaree Visitor Information Centre, 7990 Cabot Trail
Richmond: St. Peter’s Visitor Information Centre, 10259 Grenville St.
Victoria: Baddeck Visitor Information Centre, 454 Chebucto St.

“This is a way for our communities to share in the celebration of these fantastic designations and showcase the spirit of our Island,” says Mary Tulle, CEO of Destination Cape Breton. “We certainly have a lot to be proud of and it’s important to take the time to recognize the accomplishments of all who provide our visitors with a world class experience.”
These events are open to the public and are free of charge. All are encouraged to come out and help celebrate these new designations!
