The Lifestyle

Wolfville offers a mix of rural and urban living and setting the pace is entirely up to the individual. Living in a University town brings its many benefits and becoming a part of the community is made easy.


Rural + Urban

Wolfville offers a unique feel, influenced by a rich agricultural tradition, Acadia’s academic community, live music venues, an independent cinema, and a budding wine culture. Main Street is lined with boutique shops, restaurants, quaint cafes, and friendly faces. Life here is relaxing and enjoyable.


Food + Drink

The variety of places to get high quality food in this town is impressive. Within close proximity to food producers in the Valley, the always busy Farmers Market and most of the restaurants offer delicious menu items prepared with locally sourced ingredients, often paired with Nova Scotia wine, cider, or craft beer.



As one would expect in a University town, art, science, music, theatre, history, and culinary events are ever present. The annual Deep Roots Music Festival and Devour! The Food Film Fest are attracting both performers and visitors from all around the globe. Acadia University is ranked as one of Canada's top rated small universities.



The true beauty of this place is the community. To visit and see the sights is certainly enjoyable, but once you become immersed in the diversity of cultural and social activities available, it's no wonder people don't want to leave.
