SquidFest is hosted by The Town of Holyrood. As the festival showcases events all over town, the famous Beach Party is always held at our Festival Grounds located on Byrne’s Road directly adjacent to the Marina. Here are some other locations we may have events:

  • Holy Cross Park, Holyrood Access Road
  • George Cove Mountain, Salmonier Line
  • The Marine Institute, North Side Road
  • The Royal Canadian Legion, 648 Conception Bay Highway
  • Star of the Sea, 396 Conception Bay Highway


For the first time in SquidFest history we’re offering our ticket sales online! Tickets for any SquidFest30 event can be purchased online (see Festival Events page).

Beach Party

Due to liquor control regulations, the Beach Party event is only for those over 19 years of age. Security will be checking government issued ID’s at the front gate prior to the festival.
