Newfoundland is known for its quiet charm and friendly people. Over the years as other industries like fishing have slowed Newfoundland has tried to grow its tourism industry.

NFLDLABDildo is a very small fishing village. As the commercial fishing has all but ended the Dido harbor hosts mostly pleasure boats. The town boasts 3 small bed and breakfast type lodgings, 3 different places to eat out, a couple of gift shops, and a pub The Red Squid Pub.red squid pub facebook page

In Dildo every summer (in July) the town celebrates DILDO DAYS. In which the main event is a boat parade around Dildo Harbor and Dildo Island. Dildo Island is just across the water of the town of Dildo.

The town does welcome new talent from outside during the festival but, if you would like to play the local pub the Mayor has a message for you; “We don’t want any no talent assclowns here!” *
