What is Events Nova Scotia?

Events Nova Scotia is a part of the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture & Heritage and works with communities and event organizers to attract and develop major sporting, cultural and entertainment events across the province.

With our renowned hospitality, skilled volunteers and state-of-the-art facilities, Nova Scotians have a proven track record of hosting successful events. That’s why we work with communities and event organizers to set a higher standard for event hosting and position Nova Scotia as Canada’s east coast events destination.
