City Harvest – October 27 & 28

After the phenomenal excitement of Open City in May, we just couldn’t wait a whole year before having another party.

City Harvest will be held the weekend of October 27 & 28, and like last time, is open to all businesses, restaurants, institutions and charities that want to take part.

Fall is a beautiful time of year in Halifax, and one of anticipation for the upcoming Holiday season. City Harvest will bring together all that is fantastic this time of year.

To say that Open City’s side door Take Out was a success would be a gross understatement. Look for more of the same this time around with more restaurants taking to their sidewalks, their back alleys and their kitchens to bring you quick, affordable food while you explore the city and take in some of the great specials that local retailers are offering.

With our great local shops fully stocked for the Christmas season this time of year, you’ll be in for a real treat. Many stores will be offering specials, opportunities to meet artisans and makers and extra little touches to make your shopping that much more enjoyable.

Many stores, restaurants and institutions will have musicians, artists, fire breathers (well, maybe) and games for young and old.


Well, you’ve got until October 1 to tell us what you want to do & get listed in the program of events for the weekend. If you’re a member of I Love Local HFX, it’s free to sign up and get your event listed. If you’re not a member, but still a great local business, we’d love to have you too. Just email us what you want to do and we’ll let you know what else is required.

Keep in mind, this is a great opportunity to create pockets of activity in your community – the event will cover the entire peninsula, but get your close neighbours involved so that people have an even greater reason to come visit.


Why not open your doors to the public and let them know more about what you do. Or, maybe, reach out to a neighbouring shop or restaurant and partner with them on an event, exhibition, you name it.


Well, all you really have to do is clear your schedule. This time around there will be printed brochures talking about everything there is to do. You’ll also be able to collect buttons all over town and sport your love for all things local for months to come.
