Come and join us for a week-long celebration centered around sport tuna fishing. The village of Wedgeport, Nova Scotia was once considered the Sport Tuna Fishing Capital of the World.

This tournament was revived in 2004, making this year the 12th Annual Wedgeport Tuna Tournament & Festival filled with multiple events from August 16, 2015 to August 22, 2015.

Some of the events are as follows:
