As we navigate our way through COVID-19, the 2022 start date for the Candlelight Graveyard Tours is being postponed until after the next provincial update in early July.
The safety of our visitors and area residents is of paramount importance. We look forward to resuming the tours later this summer.
The Candlelight Graveyard Tours are the main source of fund raising for The Historical Association of Annapolis Royal. We want to make sure the tours are always offered in a safe and responsible manner.
No reservations are being taken until after a start date is confirmed. Thank you for your understnding and support.
