Anne of Green Gables - Prince Edward Island

Canada

Lucy Maud Montgomery was born in Cavendish in New London, Prince Edward Island. She wrote the Anne of Green Gables stories about her beloved north shore of Prince Edward Island, an area that remembers her fondly. The entire region is often dubbed "Anne's Land." Spirited, red-haired orphan Anne is celebrated and remembered rather like Sherlock Holmes-although she is fictional, you will find the bits and pieces of her life at Green Gables House, the Anne of Green Gables Museum, Lucy Maud Montgomery Heritage Museum, and of course at the Annual Lucy Maud Montgomery Festival Festival in the Cavendish area in August. Anne fans must visit Avonlea, Kindred Spirits, and Lover's Lane, even see Anne's dresses in her bedroom. (For all events, call (902-963-2149)

During July and August, the L.M. Montgomery Festival presents "Anne" and "Diana" at various locations in and around Cavendish. Participate in a tea party or be scared silly by the haunted woods. Let a young reader's imagination come to life.

The annual Lucy Maud Montgomery Festival takes place in August, and includes performances of "Anne" and "Diana," traditional music, readings from L.M. Montgomery's works, period games, an ice-cream social, barn dance and a fish-tasting feast. There is even a memorial service for L.M. Montgomery, who was buried in Cavendish Cemetery in 1942.

There's plenty for the entire family to do, but some one person in your family may never forget being in Anne's Land.
