WELCOME TO THE VILLAGE OF CARDIGAN
Cardigan is a small picturesque community situated on the banks of the Cardigan River on the east coast of Prince Edward Island, the smallest province of Canada. Cardigan was named by the British in 1765 after George Brudenell, the fifth Earl of Cardigan. The Mi'kmaq, who had been here first, named the area “Samkook” meaning “a sandy shore”.
The Village of Cardigan has a rich history and it lives today in our community. Cardigan is home to many busy businesses, a marina, a popular farmers market, an active community council, large family park, hiking trails and so much more. Lots of local services but you are still close to larger centres such as the Town of Montague. Plus you are not far from local beaches, golf courses and other attractions.
Today, the primary industries in Cardigan are services, manufacturing and fishing. Cardigan is well known for its mussels and clams and is a favourite destination for many visitors. We hope to see you at our marina, popular farmers market and heritage center this summer! Take a stroll on our walking and biking trail and drop in to buy the fresh local products and crafts at our farmer’s market. Cardigan is also home to Canada's smallest library.
