Welcome to the Town of St. George's

Town of St. George's | Home of the Blueberry Festival

The town of St. George's is located just off the Trans Canada Highway on the southeast side of Bay St. George. Incorporated in 1965, our beautiful town is the oldest town in the Bay St. George Area.

We are a 15 minute drive from Stephenville's major shopping centers and Stephenville International Airport.  Barachois Provincial Park and Black Bank Beach are just a few miles away.

Our community, originally known as South Side or Little Bay has its origins in the French fishery of the seventeenth century.  The natural harbour attracted fishermen to spend the summer in this area and they'd return to France for the winter months. Permanently settled in the eighteenth century, the community remained a fishing village for nearly 200 years until the advent of the railroad.
