The muddiest festival in the Valley!

Wolfville was originally called Mud Creek due to the muddy residue that is left behind on the out-going tide of the Minas Basin. Today, Wolfville is a vibrant community full enthusiastic community members, a passionate business community and yes, we still have lots of mud!!

Mud Creek Days is a chance to celebrate our community, and so we invite those from the Annapolis Valley and beyond to join in helping us celebrate Mud Creek Days!

Please use the information provided to plan your July 24 - 26th weekend!
