A Message from the Commission

We welcome everyone to our oceanside community - Chester, Nova Scotia!

There is no other community that has the charm, beauty, islands, history, and history of sailing all in one package. Since 1759, visitors have been coming to Chester for fishing, bathing, and sailing. There is no better place than the Lido, where the ocean comes to you in our outdoor pool. If you would like to be on the water, instead of in it, there is always room at the Chester Yacht Club. Chester Race Week began in the 1970s and continues as the premier Keelboat Regatta in Canada.

Chester offers a rich architectural history in the preservation of its homes and buildings. The soon-to-be-rebuilt Chester Playhouse provides entertainment for young and old ... with, or without walls! Every summer, local entertainers perform weekly during “Picnic in the Park” at Lordly Park. Our local restaurateurs will keep you refreshed with drinks or culinary delights after a day’s shopping for local artisanal treasures.

There is no more perfect place to relax after a round of golf at Chester Golf Club than in their clubhouse while enjoying another 'round' and an evening sunset.
