The Evergreen Festival is back for 2021, and this year it’s going to be bigger and better than ever! It is a 4-week-long outdoor winter showcase of Nova Scotian culture, food, spirits, craft, art, and memorable experiences to celebrate and embrace the essence of the season.
Local retailers, restaurants, hotels, attractions, public spaces throughout the Halifax region will offer holiday light displays and festive programming to create a festive feeling of celebration.
There are a lot to see and experience during the festivities!
