The Prince Edward Island Arts and Heritage Trail was established in 2011 to highlight the work of the Island's creative and heritage sectors. Developed by stockholders in these sectors, the initiative is today under the domain of the PEI Crafts Council, with support from Innovation PEI. Each year a new physical copy of the guide is printed and the website updated (including a downloadable PDF of the current physical guide) to reflect approximately 150 listings annually. Designated by region (drives and cities) and type, the PEI Arts & Heritage Trail is easy to navigate in creating a user-specific experience.

A word about the PEI Arts & Heritage Trail logo: Finding an Island icon that has not been used to excess and that can be reproduced both graphically and in a number of formats (i.e. colours, etc.) is no mean feat. PEI organizations and business are represented by countless lighthouses and silhouettes of the province. Marram grass, then, was chosen to reflect the unique, natural and sometimes wild nature of PEI's arts and heritage communities, while at the same time establishing that it these sectors that are the threads running throughout our communities and our province as a whole, binding it together.
