North Rustico is a village located in the northern part of Queens County, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

It is part of the incorporated resort municipality of Stanley Bridge-Hope River-Bayview-Cavendish-North Rustico. This area is increasingly becoming the desirable beach town of the island, some say it is to Charlottetown what the Hamptons are to New York City.

The village is known to locals, as well as all other islanders as "The Crick"

North Rustico is well known for its Canada day celebration every year on July 1st. The event usually attracts in excess of 10,000 people, which packs the village quite full, it includes festivities in the park, a parade down main street, as well as a boat parade on Rustico Harbour. The celebration is popular among families, and among teenagers and adults, it is well respected as the best party of the summer. The day is completed around 10:00pm by an impressive fireworks display over the bay.

The village of North Rustico was founded circa "1790", around a small natural harbour along the Gulf of St. Lawrence coast. The region was home to a remnant Acadian population who fled British capture and deportation during the Seven Years' War (see Great Upheaval), although English, Scottish and Irish settlers moved into the area during the remainder of the 18th century and throughout the 19th and 20th centuries.
