We are excited to bring back the Nova Scotia Forest Festival once again, a showcase of the many ways Nova Scotians connect to the Province’s forests for their livelihood, housing, recreation, food, and heritage. From visiting "Creatures of the Night" to learning to throw an axe or paddle a canoe, come and enjoy an array of activities in the fresh fall air!
After working up an appetite, head on over to the Cookhouse where we will be serving traditional lumberjack meals on enamel plates and bowls, just like back in the day! $12 for your choice of a bowl of Soup, Stew or Baked Beans, along with brown bread, gingerbread with lemon sauce, and a beverage - all cooked and baked according to traditional recipes! A BBQ will also be available during our axe-throwing tournament, which will take place from 1 - 3PM.
The Nova Scotia Forest Festival runs from 11am to 4pm and is rain or shine, so come on out no matter the weather!

Find out if they have the chops!
Support our local businesses while they go axe head to axe head to see who will take home the 'Golden Axe' (and bragging rights until next year)!
This year we will also offer BBQ fare beside the Sober Island Brewing beer truck, so you can grab a burger and a brew while you cheer on your favourite team!
We are excited to share this year's list of participating teams!
