Nova Scotia Forest Festival

Sat, October 02, 2021

Grab Your Plaid and Head for the Woods! 

The Nova Scotia Forest Festival is a showcase of the many ways Nova Scotians connect to the Province’s forests for their livelihood, housing, recreation, food, and heritage. From hands-on demonstrations and activities 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! 

The Nova Scotia Forest Festival runs from 11am to 4pm and is rain or shine, so come on out no matter the weather!

Please Note: Memory Lane Heritage Village has farm animals on site and does not allow pets within the Village grounds.

Please check back for the 2020 Forest Festival video in the new year!
