Open City May 12-13
We have a great city, but how often do we really explore it?

When friends & family come to visit, are you at a loss to tell them the must see stops?

How long has it been since you’ve visited the Citadel?

Haven’t you always wanted to try something new?

Open City is the answer to all these questions, and many more that you haven’t even considered.

On May 12 & 13, Halifax will be Open – kitchen doors at restaurants will be open, galleries will be open, stores will be open and showing you their wares.

We want you to get out of your comfort zone, to try something new and to learn more about this great city of ours & then we want you to share what you find. Tweet it, post it to facebook, tell your friends and family who are living abroad to come visit.

We’ll post everything that we know about on this site as it comes in, but you can also find things & share things on twitter by using #OpenCity

If you’re a musician, or know one, introduce yourself to a shopkeeper and arrange to play in their shop on the 12th & 13th.

If you’re a crafter of products, arrange to open your studio to the public, or do a demonstration in a store that sells your wares.

If you run a museum or gallery, do something special, or interactive for the weekend, consider offering free admission for the weekend.

If you’re a shop owner, do a little something extra – serve cupcakes, grab a keg of local beer, or just offer a special for the weekend.

If you’re a chef, take part in our SideDoor Take Out – high end food, to eat on the go, & sold out the back (or front) of your otherwise formal dining room.

Watch this space, we’ll be posting things as they come in – if you have an event or special offer that you want to see posted here, please click on the contact us button. Any independent business or restaurant, gallery, museum, or attraction on the peninsula is encouraged to take part.

As an added incentive, you’ll also be able to pick up an Open City Passport at various locations during the weekend – use it to track your progress, to keep notes and for chances to win prizes from some of your favourite I Love Local businesses.
