Insider’s Tip

The season long Stompin’ Tom Festival Series runs June to September featuring well known Canadian, regional and local artists including the Road Hammers, Jason McCoy, April Wine, Myles Goodwin, Peggy Clinton & Johnny Ross and so many more! Check out the website for tickets and calendar of events.

Stompin’ Tom Connors devoted his life to singing about the people and places that make Canada great. His homegrown music, distinctive black hat and boots, foot stomping stage antics and brash patriotism paved the way for him to become an iconic folk-country Canadian artist.

His music that branches from his boyhood roots in Skinner’s Pond, Prince Edward Island, still vibrates across the country and tugs at the heartstrings. To map this musical man’s journey and pay tribute to his work, fans can step inside the recently built Stompin’ Tom Centre in Skinner’s Pond.

Tom finally found a place to hang up his iconic hat and boots, as well as other memorabilia for permanent display at the superb facility, which also houses authentic products, services and experiences.

On the grounds, there is the opportunity to step back in time through the schoolhouse doors that Tom attended and purchased in the 1970s. After falling into disrepair, a renovation with an interactive digital interpretation breathed new life into the old building.

The facility is open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., starting June 1 and wrapping up on October 1, with the exception of the Stompin’ Grounds entertainment space, which stays open late for live entertainment.


No one knows Prince Edward Island better than the people who live and explore it every day. Learn about beaches the locals use, the best spot for kayaking, find out where Islanders buy their fresh seafood and what to do with the kids on a rainy summer day.
