Bay of Quinte - where there is something for everyone.
Discover hundreds of years of agricultural tradition blended with creativity, innovation, and technology. Surround yourself with 1,200 km of shoreline in rapidly developing cities and towns with new and existing homes to make your own. We’re accessible by highway and rail, but you just might find that sailing around the bay is more your style. Here, you can create your own sense of place: see the Bay of Quinte and understand why we choose to live, work, and play here.
Rich in culture and heritage.
The team of Snowbirds flying over your head isn’t an illusion: it’s part of the cultural landscape. Our military history, Mohawk and UEL roots are just the beginning of the story.
Plan your adventure in Bay of Quinte's backyard.
On foot or wheels, by ski, boat or helicopter, there’s nothing stopping you from exploring everything we have to offer across all four seasons.
Innovation & creation.
Our agricultural traditions are as strong as ever and you’ll find them infused into the local food scene in the region. Craft beer, locally-raised meats, produce and preserves and of course, world-class cheddar are yours for the tasting.
Welcome to our playground.
Find a paddler’s paradise, an angler’s hot spot and a photographer’s dream. There’s nothing quite like the sound of silence as you cast a line out into a Bay of Quinte sunrise.
Year-round activities to fill up your calendar.
Show-stopping live performances, historic venues and family-friendly festivals are found across the region. Try your hand at painting “en plein air” or take a peek around galleries filled with local and international inspiration.
