Great shows on a summer night

Only pipping college in North America. Have great Celtic shows with dancing, singing and music in an outdoor theatre. Great prices and snacks as well.

Hubby and I went to this show in August and LOVED it! The quality of the music and the performers is top notch. I feel very confident in saying they are world class. We saw Riverdance a few years ago and loved it as well and the College of Piping put on a show equally well! Highly recommend but don't... More

I attended an intensive course on the bagpipes at the College and cannot say enough about the excellent teaching that I received from James and Kylie MacHattie. The Gift Shop is well worth a visit and the College is well known for their Pipe Bands. Drop in just to see the set of Bagpipes that was used at the Battle... More

Learning to play the Bagpipes has been on my "Bucket List" for some time. During my recent vacation in Prince Edward Island, I spent some time at the College of Piping to gather additional information on their Summer programs. The people I spoke to there were very nice and extremely helpful. Not only did they provide me information about the... More

Culture. The music. We laid on our bed and relaxed while listening to the piping championships down the bottom of the lane. The gift shop carried a variety of unique and cultural gifts and were reasonably priced, The, location couldn't have been better.

Although the group was away to Scotland, we were able to watch the video of the performance they put on in Summerside. It was well worth the time we spent there.

This is definitely the gem of Summerside. People from all over the world come to this little town to learn to excel at playing the bagpipes. What a lot of talent from the performers. Many of them performed in various roles- dancing, playing various instruments including the fiddle, different drums, the bagpipes, spoons and there was highland dancing (hard shoe... More

Last year's Highland Storm was so wonderful it was a "must do" again this year while in PEI. Hats off to Director Ryan MacNeil and the dedicated Staff of The College of Piping and Performing Arts for giving us another outstanding Show ! Having arrived in Summerside on Aug. 5th, we were fortunate to see the last Show for the... More

We went to see the final performance of Celtic Thunder for 2014 on August the 6th at the outdoor theatre of The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts.. We very much enjoyed all of the performance. They had a good mix of music. I don't believe that I have ever heard the bagpipes play a Beatles song before! I... More

We went to the afternoon mini-show. It was interesting and they did explain the instruments etc. The mosquitos were biting even at 1:30 in the afternoon.
