DIGGING DEEP … SO WE CAN DIG DEEPER


2021 marks the 400th anniversary of the founding of the Colony of Avalon. To mark the occasion, we’re planning a year long celebration designed to increase awareness and understanding of the Colony’s legacy as a pioneering settlement, a commercial enterprise and as the birthplace of religious tolerance in North America.

There’s lots to do before the party starts, including enhancing and diversifying our visitor experience, stabilizing an eroding shoreline, and establishing a Centre of Excellence for archaeology. We have big plans, but we can’t do it alone.

To find out more about our Digging Deep campaign and how you can help, contact Maryanne.
