Driving Directions to the Elizabeth Bishop House
EBSNS is a provincial association that celebrates Elizabeth Bishop’s connections to Nova Scotia, and especially Great Village. We welcome visitors from around the world. Please use the Goolge Map link to obtain driving directions to Great Village.
This small but vibrant village, in spite of many changes, remains much as it was during Elizabeth Bishop’s childhood. St. James Church still dominates the skyline with its 112 foot steeple.
Elizabeth Bishop Festival
Dozens of artists, artisans, volunteers and Bishop fans flocked to Great Village on 8 August 2015 for The Elizabeth Bishop Festival. From morning to night, the village was bustling with activity, creating wonderful memories for all. The EBSNS wishes to extend heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated, attended and supported the festival.
