Join us in celebrating the 4th annual Open East Hants Day
On Saturday, May 25th, 2019
Open East Hants Day is a unique opportunity for residents and visitors of East Hants to celebrate our local business community. Businesses that register for this event open their doors to the public and invite the community into their place of businesses to share their products and services. This collective “Open House” event makes it easy for people to experience everything East Hants has to offer in one day, so that they become ambassadors of our area by getting acquainted with the people who work and play here.
There is no cost to participate and all businesses are encouraged to take part.
Home-based businesses are welcome to showcase their products and services at the POP MARKET located this year in the parking lot of SB Tire Craft 485 Hwy #2 Enfield. No cost to participate. Bring your own tables, tents and chairs.
Another great way to promote “Think Local First” is to contribute to the Prize Basket for the OEHD Contest. Items can be dropped off to the EHCC office.
IMPORTANT: Please visit the EHCC office, 8 Old Enfield Road Unit 205, the week of May 20th to pick up your Open EH Day kit (signs, bags and balloons).
Check out our map below to see what businesses are taking part this year! Keep checking for updates! We will be updating up to the event day.
Open East Hants Day Contest
Visit at least 10 participating businesses to get your Open East Hants Day Passport signed or stamped for a chance to win a pair of Tide Fest Tickets and a gift basket of local collections valued at over $500. Drop off your completed passports to the Think Local First tent at the Pop Up Market that day or drop them off before Friday, May 31st 4:30pm at the EHCC office located at 8 Old Enfield Rd. Unit 205, Enfield. Draw will take place Monday morning, June 3rd.
