Open City HFX 2023: Saturday May 13, 2023
Are you located on the Halifax Peninsula or Downtown Dartmouth?
Are you locally owned and operated?
Register your business/organization - it's FREE!
If you answered yes to those questions, then the door is open AND you need to register for OPEN CITY!
What will you be offering?
We need you to think about what it is you can do to animate your business, your sidewalk, your block - is it a special 'sample' item? Will you host musicians? Artists? Will you be offering an 'OPEN CITY' Special? Are you teaming up with a non-profit for a fundraiser? Will you have a special product offering for this one day only?
Tell us about it!
Once you know what you are offering, we need you to tell us about it so that we can promote it. There is no cost to participate and all independent businesses are encouraged to take part. Just complete the form below by May 8, 2023.
Get creative and have fun with it!
If you’re a musician, or know one, introduce yourself to a shopkeeper and arrange to play in their shop or play on your front step, in a park, on the Boardwalk.
If you’re a crafter of products, arrange to open your studio to the public, or do a demonstration in a store that sells your wares.
If you run a museum or gallery, do something special, or interactive for the weekend, consider offering free admission for the weekend.
If you’re a shop owner, do a little something extra – serve cupcakes, grab a keg of local beer, or just offer a special for the weekend.
If you’re a chef, take part in our Back Door Take Out – high end food, to eat on the go, & sold out the back (or front) of your otherwise formal dining room.
If you're a charity or community organization, same thing. How will you take to the streets to spread your message, who will you partner with in your community to make something happen?
