The Nova Scotia Forest Festival is a showcase of the many ways Nova Scotians connect to the Province’s forests for their livelihood, housing, recreation, food, and heritage.

Activities:
Participate in an axe-throwing competition
Paddle a canoe
Taste maple syrup
Ride on an ATV
Marvel at the weight of a 1950s chainsaw
Join us for the quintessential Canadian experience of gathering around the campfire for stories, songs and roasted marshmallows!

Enjoy nature walks and educational sessions on everything from wilderness survival and forest ecology to contemporary harvesting and manufacturing

In addition to showcasing how we connected to our forests in the past, we will highlight the importance they still hold for us today, and will continue to hold in the future.

The event is free admission with traditonal lumberjack meals being served in the Cookhouse. ($10 for your choice of a bowl of Beef Stew, Corn Chowder or Baked Beans, brown bread, gingerbread and sauce and a beverage.)

This is sure to be a fun fall weekend that will connect all visitors to to our forests and all they have to offer!
