Pan­demic post­pone­ments

We’re miss­ing these events that make the best sea­son even bet­ter.

There’s no re­place­ment for cram­ming your­self into the Sco­tia­bank Cen­tre to watch per­form­ers of all stripes do their wild mu­si­cal thing.

The ab­so­lute in­sti­tu­tion of an out­door the­atre ex­pe­ri­ence, this Val­ley gem is com­ing back in Sum­mer 2021.

Shake­speare By The Sea

How could we de­scribe how sorely we miss this out­door the­atre? Shall we com­pare it to a sum­mer’s day?

FIN Out­door

What’s bet­ter than a sun­set in the Public Gar­dens? Watch­ing a sun­set in the Public Gar­dens while kit­ted out like your favourite Rocky Hor­ror char­ac­ter. Won­der­ing WTF we’re talk­ing about? Re­cent sum­mers have seen some cult movies shown out­doors thanks to FIN—but this sum­mer you gotta re-watch the GOAT of mu­si­cals in­side your apart­ment in­stead.

Granville Green

The mu­sic fest that held free out­door mati­nees in down­town Port Hawkes­bury was a way to com­bine the best week­end ac­tiv­i­ties (that is, go­ing for a drive, ex­plor­ing some­place new and catch­ing some live tunes) while host­ing acts like Win­ter­sleep and Hey Rosetta! We can’t wait to see what next year’s lineup brings.

Peggy’s Cove Area Fes­ti­val of the Arts

The out­door art fest isn’t hap­pen­ing in 2020, but you can still sup­port the area's com­mu­nity of cre­ators: It’s as sim­ple as swing­ing by the fest’s Mem­bers Art Show, hap­pen­ing July 10-25, at St. Mar­garets Bay Com­mu­nity En­ter­prise Cen­tre (5229 St. Mar­garet's Bay Road, Up­per Tan­tallon).
