World's Largest Fiddle

74 Esplanade, Sydney, NS

(902) 564-0800


The World’s Largest Fiddle located on the Sydney waterfront next to the Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion greets visitors as they arrive via cruise ship.  The fiddle and bow reach a height of 60 feet!

The Big Fiddle, as many call it, was designed and constructed by Cyril Hearn in 2005.  It is a tribute to the folk music and traditions of the province’s Celtic community.

Made of solid steel, the giant fiddle was dubbed FIDHEAL MHOR A’ CEILIDH or the “Big Fiddle of the Ceilidh”. Ceilidh is a Gaelic word which translates in to “visit”.

It is a must-see attraction when visiting Sydney.
