Quispamsis Stories and Tips

Hometown Pride

Quispamsis is possibly the cutest, quaintest, friendliest place I can think of. There is nowhere else I would call home and really mean it. The people here are super friendly and our crime rate is pretty low for such a big place. Our community is the fourth largest in the Maritimes, but you'd never think it just from being here a day. We stretch from the main road (Old Hampton Highway) all the way up to Hampton.

If you are here in the summer, one of the events to check out is the KV Players theatre productions that are put on usually in July at Kennebecasis Valley High School. A classic favourite that keeps coming back year after year is "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" and the directors (noting Mrs. S. Yerxa) never fail to find interesting and different performances for the whole family. The actors come from our own hometowns and the talent is so great that we have won numerous awards for our legendary shows!

Another great thing about the "Valley," as it's commonly called, is our Superstore. Recently rebuilt in a new location, it is the biggest grocery store in Atlantic Canada. It now boasts, along with the grocery section, a women-only fitness center, an optical store, a photo lab/shop, and a clothing/housewares department. It's like a major department store.
