What’s On

This summer

put Halifax on your hotlist!

With long days and balmy nights to enjoy, it’s a good job there’s plenty going on in Halifax this summer. By way of a warm up, we’ve got bold new street art and the stunning new Duke of Wellington statue to show off.

Then there are the blockbusters – big and exciting events like the Heritage Festival, Pride, and our epic Big Weekend complete with its Food & Drink Festival, Minster Festival, and big-name music shows at the stunning Piece Hall.  There are must-see events at other venues too, not to mention smaller, quirkier goings-on at lesser-known places around town. Don’t forget our busy markets, independent shops and thriving café, bar and restaurant scene too.  Whatever you’re into, whatever makes you tick – set your alarm for early to cram it all in!
