The 2nd Annual Select Nova Scotia IncrEDIBLE Picnic

Select Nova Scotia's 2nd Annual Incredible Picnic has been postponed for this Sunday. The event has been rescheduled for next Sunday, August 30th. From 11am-3pm, Nova Scotians will gather simultaneously at 11 locations throughout the province to experience agri-food products from a variety of sources.

This is such a great event; not only does it help to build relationships between consumers and purveyors, but it assists in strengthening the bond between family and friends as well. You can pack your own picnic or purchase from the vendors on site.

I'll be attending the Halifax picnic at Garrison Grounds, Citadel Hill, to take part in the camaraderie of those who love delicious local products in an environment conducive to sharing both food and the pleasure of eating it.

There will also be displays from Taste of Nova Scotia, Halifax Seed and the Ecology Action Centre. Have fun with the kiddies with face painting, a petting zoo from Hatfield Farms and an Aquaculture Touch Tank.

Be sure to check out my experience at last year's picnic here. It's a great way to spend the day; learning about Nova Scotian products, spending some quality time with the family, and catching up with old and new friends.
