Evergreen Festival Adapting to COVID-19 Guidelines

Thursday, November 26, 2020

Evergreen Festival  is a four-week event organized by Develop Nova Scotia and Discover Halifax to extend the tourism season and provide a premier holiday event in Halifax. The festival, which opens on November 28, intends to celebrate our diverse culture and help small, local business reach customers.
The festival is moving forward with some changes to respond to recent public health directives. Here’s what's changing:

  • Shoppers can buy local by visiting the Virtual Evergreen Market to get your holiday shopping done
  • Entertainment is shifting online. All live, in-person entertainment has been cancelled; however it will be live-streamed free so that everyone can participate while staying snug and safe
  • Many local restaurants are still offering take-out & delivery
  • Light displays downtown and on the Halifax waterfront will still be twinkling for safe strolls through Evergreen Bright.
