Description of Event

Located in Upper Trinity South, Dildo is a very historic place for Newfoundland tourism. Dildo was settled in the early 1800's by the Reids, the Prettys, and the Smiths. During the 1990's, these names were still predominant names in the community. Every summer, Dildo sponsors Dildo Days which is a community celebration and a Newfoundland tourism destination.

Dildo Days celebrations includes fireworks, a bouncy castle and one very funny adult pageant. We have our very own community talent for the Saturday night dance (Third Strike) and our annual Boat Floatila is offering great prizes for the best decorated boats! 

All events are taking place on your back step: the wharf, the lodge and on the grounds of the lodge. 

Admission Fee (if any): See website http://celebratedildodays.ca/default.asp

I have a video of one of the early Dildo Days ...sadly a lot of people in the have passed-on. We were all friends and still are . The only friends I have lost are smiling down on us today. Live every day !!.
