Festivals and Event Support

Festival and Event listing on NovaScotia.com

It is free to list events on novascotia.com/events. Event organizers can submit and manage their own listings through the Partner Portal at partners.novascotia.com. Once the festival/event has been approved, the information will be available to consumers on our official tourism website, novascotia.com.

For further information on how Nova Scotia Tourism provides marketing support to Festivals and Events, please contact Meaghan Giffin at 798-6896 or meaghan.giffin@novascotia.ca.

Festival & Event Marketing Program

The Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage is now responsible for all inquiries related to event funding and development in Nova Scotia. As they are the single on-ramp for all event requests they will also administer the festival & event marketing program.

For more information on the program, contact Angela Dennison at angela.dennison@novascotia.ca or by phone at 902-424-3876.
