We know that large public gatherings like festivals and events are currently restricted to the gathering limits of 250 outdoors and 200 indoors, with physical distancing maintained, according to the current public health order. However, planning and being ready to host major events, when it is safe to do so, will help us be ready to welcome back visitors and host at a high standard.
Education and capacity building is a key pillar of the Nova Scotia Event Strategy and ensuring event organizers have the tools they need to better understand the business of events is key. That is why our team has developed a comprehensive guide on planning and hosting festivals and events in Nova Scotia.
Our Guide to Planning and Hosting Festivals and Events in Nova Scotia will walk you through everything you need to know. It will help you plan, identify, and address the necessary details that go into hosting a successful event. The guide consists of 12 chapters, covering matters you will need to consider from the initial idea through to selecting a site and date, the logistics, production, marketing, and post-event evaluation.
Throughout the guide, you will find helpful tips and examples of how other Nova Scotia festivals and events have operated, along with links to other resources and free templates.
