About Wolfville

Welcome to Wolfville, a cultivated experience for the body, mind and soil. 

On Mi'kma’ki, in the Annapolis Valley, nestled between mountains, the highest tides in the world and bountiful agricultural lands, you will find the Town of Wolfville. 

Wolfville’s charm comes from both Maritime-inspired architecture, and the friendly, outdoor-loving people of all ages and abilities who call our Town “home.”

Our cosmopolitan downtown core is surrounded by breathtaking landscapes, including the picturesque Harbour, that connects us to the powerful Fundy tides. Trails and Parks connect to our Main Street, supporting four seasons of mindful wandering and outdoor adventure. 

As the home of Acadia University, Wolfville is a proud town and gown community, where students live and learn through both hard work and good fun.

Nestled in the heart of Nova Scotia’s wine country, our Town offers access to the best in locally crafted artisan food and beverage. Explore local flavours at the Wolfville Farmers’ Market or spoil your tastebuds in any of our local eateries.

In Wolfville, we celebrate culture with beautifully decorated public spaces, theatres, workshops, galleries, boutiques, cafés, restaurants, spiritual places, unspoilt landscapes, festivals, and fascinating craftspeople. 

Wolfville is situated in the Northwestern portion of Nova Scotia, along the shores of the Minas Basin which is part of the Bay of Fundy, home to the world's highest tides. The Town is separated from the Minas Basin by agricultural dykes, built by Acadians in the 17th century. Wolfville experiences the Bay of Fundy's record setting tides each day as water fills and drains from the Wolfville Harbour, which is the smallest in the world.

You can find Wolfville along Highway 1, which is connected to Highway 101 at two interchanges approximately 4 kilometres east or west of Town limits. The Town has a geographic area of 7.31 square kilometres and is approximately an hour's drive from Halifax International Airport and Halifax, Atlantic Canada's largest city.
