Open East Hants Day

Join us Saturday, May 28th, 2022

Open East Hants 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.

Tell other businesses – the more the merrier. It’s easy, free and available to everyone. The sooner you sign up, the more chances at promotion you will have.

The deadline to sign up and be listed in the different media channels is Friday, May 6th. << REGISTRATION>>
