Seasonal Businesses – Halifax Waterfront

HalifaxFeatured Partners

Summer is right around the corner and we are excited to announce our “New Place” and seasonal vendors for Halifax waterfront.

20,000 square feet of public space between Salter and Sackville Streets will house high-quality small local businesses, arts and entertainment.

The “New Place” includes Sands at Salter, a performance stage, and lots of public seating. Eight gender-neutral public washrooms, including two accessible washrooms, enhanced lighting and landscaping.

The space has yet to be named, but we will be turning to you this summer for your suggestions!

A roster of local tastes and experiences will fill the new space, starting in mid-June. Some sights and tastes you’ll remember from past years, along with a mix of new faces to the waterfront.
