Artists and musicians in the Digby will have the chance to show their work in front of large crowds this summer.

The Rendez-vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta is coming Digby and Annapolis Royal August 15th and 16th as part of Canada 150 celebrations.

Seven ships including the Bluenose will sail from the Annapolis Basin to Digby Harbour.

The Town of Digby is planning to showcase local artistic talents through the town.

Mayor Ben Cleveland says there will be music on the waterfront, an arts show and more.

"The theme is called "The Rythyms of the Sea". We're going to ring the Annapolis Basin with different events. We just want people to say wow!, that was a great show and come away with a great impression of the area."

Cleveland encourages artists and musicians to apply as soon as possible.

There will also be a large fireworks show in Annapolis Royal, Cleveland says one of the largest the area has ever seen.
