After 20 years of going to the Island for summer vacation, I thought we had seen everything there was to see. Boy was I wrong! We arrived at Avonlea Village shortly after it opened in the morning, which is what I recommend as the entire day is full of performances. We were greeted at the entrance by the busybody, Rachel...

Stopped past here a few days ago (7th May) and it was like deserted ghost town. Understandably the tourist season might not start for another few weeks, but the village looks like it would take much longer before it could start welcoming visitors. The buildings were empty and everything is in desparate need of maintenance. Maybe this is normal for... More

My husband and I went after the people in costume were gone, as admission is free after 5. That was a big disappointment, however, the little shops were open.

I'm from Prince Edward Island and I have been coming to Avonlea village since I was five years old and am now nineteen. I absolutely love it and would recommend it for all family members. I have been there when it was raining and it is still fun to walk around the old fashioned village and go to the kitchen... More

My family flew to Maine from Alabama and drove to Prince Edward Island all because my daughter wanted to see "Green Gables". Avonlea Village was the highlight of the trip. My 2 girls had a blast. There were actors all over the village in character, parts of the story acted out all day long in different parts of the town,... More

Absolutely loved it, it was really fun visiting Avonlea it was cute, lots to look at and do. We loved the little skits they put on and the games they had for adults and children to play.

What a cute place - feels like you stepped back in time! The church is a beautiful work of architecture and it's a great stop on a nice clear day.

My daughter and I went to Avonlea Village and really enjoyed ourselves. The activities and little shows are what make it special. Anne of Green Gables Characters walk about and even do little plays, a concert, outdoor games and a spelling bee in the school house. We tried on the dress up clothes and listened to an Acadian Musical Concert.... More

It was quaint but nothing special. We stopped by for a visit late afternoon on a day trip through PEI. I guess things were closing up since we didn’t have to pay entry fee. Also, there were very few cars (4 including ours) and people. We were told we could walk through the tiny village but we couldn’t go into... More
