Located in the east end of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Quidi Vidi is known for being one of the oldest fishing villages in North America. It’s sheltered harbour was the perfect location for fisherman in early days of settlement in Newfoundland and, to this day, remains a useful fishing port. The main part of the Village, surrounding ‘The Harbour’ and ‘The Gut,’ consists of just over 60 homes, and has retained a distinct village feel, despite being within minutes of the downtown core. The fishing stages, and jutting stage heads, that line the shores of both the north and south side of ‘The Harbour’ and ‘The Gut’ contribute to an old world atmosphere.
