With or without a show, this is worth visiting
April 24, 2014

The Centre is a fine place to visit whether there is a performance in the amphitheater outside or the main hall inside. It was well-designed, with beautiful marble/granite work, displays of First Nations customs and villages, animals resident to Canada, and/or traveling art shows. The museum has very interesting works of art that change fairly often. This can take an... more

Levee Day
January 26, 2014

My friend and I visited on New Year's day for the Premier's Levee. Memorial Hall was full of people milling about to the wonderful piano playing of a staff member-he took many requests and didn't say no to anything! Fantastic food, wonderful atmosphere and impeccable service. A great way to start the New Year!

No trip to PEI is complete without seeing Anne if Green Gables at the Confed Centre. It's been running for over 50 years and it never gets old. If you can convince them, even non-theatre fans will love it.

Great place to see the history of PEI
November 24, 2013

I have been to many shows at the centre, many social functions and have eaten at the restaurant several times...and I enjoyed it every time. They have this new tunnel going from the Confederation Court Mall and the hotel, to the Confederation Centre. it is very convenient and you don't have to go out in the snow to use it.

Anne of Green Gables the Musical

We spent one evening of our stay in Charlottetown at the theater. We were lucky that the Charlottetown Festival was still going on and the Anne of Green Gables Musical was available during our stay. We really enjoyed the humorous yet heartwarming musical about our favorite red head. The staff at the theater were very nice and helpful. The theater... more

Evangeline, the Theatre production in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
September 27, 2013

Evangeline, the theatre production, was a highlight of our Prince Edward Island visit. Don’t miss it! It is not just entertainment but it tells the history of a shameful act flavored with redemption. Beautifully done. It will last in my memory!

The Confederation Centre of the Arts has a superb theatre. Over the years, my wife and I have enjoyed several excellent renditions of Anne of Green Gables there, so we were quite prepared to enjoy the musical Evangeline equally.

Saw "Evangeline", which, although enjoyable, seemed as epic as the Longfellow poem on which it is based. We thought it would never end! Voices were superb. The interweaving of ethnic Acadian, Cajun, Mi'kmaq, and Black cultures was impressive. Seating in the Homburg Theatre was comfortable and acoustics excellent.

Canadian Modern Art at its best
September 12, 2013

Be sure an stop by the Confederation Centre while visiting PEI. Three floors contain many types of contemporary art - including installations, video and traditional paintings. There was a mask display while we were there and a wonderful installation about the local Indian tribes. Walkable from anywhere, including the cruise ship terminal.

Amazing Musical
September 08, 2013

The musical Evangeline was excellent. All performers were great singers. It was a fabulous evening. The only negative thing I have to say is that the Centre needs to replace its seats with new larger more comfortable seats. Apart from that, they're perfect!
