Open East Hants Day

Join us in celebrating the 3rd annual Open East Hants Day

On Saturday, May 26th, 2018

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.

IMPORTANT: Please visit the EHCC office, 8 Old Enfield Road Unit 205, the week of May 21st to pick up your Open EH Day kit (signs, bags and balloons).
