Open East Hants Day

Join us Saturday, May 25th, 2024 for Open East Hants Day! 

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 business to share their products and services. This collective “Open House” event makes it easy for people to experience everything East Hants has to offer, so that they become ambassadors of our area by getting acquainted with the people who work and play here.


If you’re a local business interested in participating, please register using the link below. There is NO COST to participate and all businesses are encouraged to take part.

There are 3 Pop-Up Locations for those businesses without a store-front. This year, in order to encourage young entrepreneurs, we welcome youth (age 18 and under) to let us know they want to participate at any pop-up location. They will be recognized with special signage and on the Open East Hants Day map.
