The town of Digby was settled in 1783, and named after Sir. Robert Digby. It lies on the Annapolis Basin which is part of the Bay of Fundy and home to the highest tides in the world. Digby's economy has been mainly made up of tourism, lumber, and fishing industries, but is probably most well known for its scallops.
Digby combines both scallops and tourism each year by celebrating its Scallop Days Festival. The festival includes many events such as scallop shucking contests, the coronation of Scallop Days Queen, and a parade.
