It is an exciting time to be in Nova Scotia at the water’s edge. It is here where residents and visitors alike come to experience and celebrate our maritime culture, where we find and nurture inspiration. As a province, our place by the sea is our greatest natural advantage.
Develop Nova Scotia curates and manages the Halifax and Lunenburg Waterfronts. Every year, together with our community and partners, we welcome and host a variety of festivals, activities, events and programs in these popular places by the sea – do you have an idea you’d like to host and add to the waterfront?
Public Call for Waterfront Activations: Waterfront +
Given that this year (2021/22), more than perhaps any other year, we are all motivated to get outside, get active, and find fun and safe activities. We also know that organizations are looking for open spaces where they can host their events – why not consider the waterfront?
Now is the time to ask:
How can we all work together to ensure there’s always something interesting going on at #mywaterfront (either in Halifax or Lunenburg)?
What can you add (+) to the waterfront?
We are inviting you to add to the waterfront. Share with us how you might bring a waterfront space to life – small or large, any time of year, several times a month or year, or just once.
How do you submit your ideas and when’s the deadline?
It’s easy to submit your ideas – just complete the Waterfront + Online Submission Form as soon as possible. The initial submission review deadline is April 29, 2021. If you’ve missed this deadline, don’t worry, we’ll be reviewing submissions monthly, or maybe even more frequently. That’s it – easy!
Upcoming Review Deadlines:
May 27, 2021
June 24, 2021
July 29, 2021
Once you submit, Develop Nova Scotia may short-list submissions for potential meetings, discussions and/or presentations. Knowing you’ll be eager to get your planning underway, we will get in touch with you within 30 days of the review deadline date.
*Please Note: If your idea cannot be accommodated on the waterfront, we will help you look for other suitable locations!
