Founded in 1964 as a National Memorial to the Fathers of the Confederation, the centre is a celebration of the diversity, talent and character of Canada and its history. Situated on the site of the old Charlottetown marketplace, it takes up a city block and is home to an art gallery, several theatres and a restaurant. A celebration of theatre and comedy, the annual Charlottetown Festival has spawned several highly successful productions, including the immensely popular Anne of Green Gables, Canada's longest running musical. The Confederation Centre Art Gallery has more than 15,000 pieces of contemporary, modern and historical Canadian art, and is well worth a visit.
Address: 145 Richmond Street, Charlottetown
