This summer in Halifax has been jam-packed with awesome events, and August is no exception. The rest of the month is sure to please with food, culture, beach and sporting events… in other words, there’s something for everyone!
The Clam Harbour Beach Sandcastle Competition is a long-running Nova Scotia tradition (35 years!) and this year it’s happening on August 16. This rain or shine event is right here in the HRM. Check the website for parking, map and information on how to enter!
The first (hopefully of many) Taste of Argyle event is happening over the weekend of August 21-23. Head to the heart of downtown Halifax for food, entertainment and fun family activities happening outside on Argyle Street throughout the weekend.
The second annual Halifax edition of the international event Diner en Blanc is on August 22. This sophisticated pop-up French picnic happens at a top secret location every year — even the attendees don’t know where the event is until they get there! Mysterious, fun and chic, this is an invite-only event for 1,000 lucky people!
The “Battle for New Scotland” is happening on August 29 where our Rugby Canada Team takes on the Glasgow Warriors from Scotland in this professional rugby match at the Wanderers Grounds in downtown Halifax. Be a part of this exciting event that will see 5,000 fans gather in Halifax to cheer on Canada! Tickets are still available. (The Wanderers Grounds are a quick walk from our hotel!)
