Area Attractions

creameryOne of the most famous landmarks in the village is the Tatamagouche Creamery, begun by Alexander Ross in 1925. Over 1000 local farms supplied milk to the Creamery in order to produce its famous Tatamagouche Butter, which it did daily, making almost 2,000 lb (910 kg). In 1930, J. J. Creighton purchased the Creamery. After his death in 1967, Scotsburn Dairy Cooperative acquired it. Scotsburn kept the Creamery operational from 1968 until they closed its doors in 1992. The 1-acre (4,000 m2) lot and two buildings were donated to the village with the stipulation that no structural changes were to be made to the building’s exterior, including the name and colour. However, a community cannot hold a deed, so the Creamery Society, a community-based organization, was formed to take over the building. The Creamery Square Association was formed to develop the Creamery Square project. A new Farmers' Market building opened in May 2006, and the Creamery building is now home to The North Shore Archives and the Giantess Anna Swan Museum. The Sunrise Trail Museum and Brule Fossil Centre will be components of this new heritage development.

Malagash blueseais a quiet rural community just off the Sunrise Trail between Pugwash and Tatamagouche where you will find the Blue Sea Beach Park; a mile long sandy beach, perfect for a stroll or a dip in the warm waters of the Northumberland Strait.

The Barrachois Harbour Yacht Club just east of Tatamagouche offers excellent cruising and racing programs as well as online resources for powerboats and sailing vessels.

millThe Fraser Cultural Centre acts as a visitor information center, and art gallery, and has an exhibition about the "Nova Scotia Giantess" Anna Swan.

On the last weekend of September each year, the Bavarian Society of Tatamagouche hosts the second largest Oktoberfest in Canada.

The Sutherland Steam Mill Museum is in the nearby village of Denmark.
