What’s happening around our beautiful city in April? Enjoy our month-at-a-glance listing of ongoing events happening in Halifax, Dartmouth, Bedford, Sackville and beyond!

April is here! Bring on the flowers and showers… the warmer weather and longer days! April is the official first full month of spring and if you are looking to do some spring cleaning or pick up some clothes for the ever-growing little sprouts, there are two spring children’s consignment sales in April. Easter comes hopping along in the middle of the month with many Easter activities and egg hunts. We also have some special guests coming to town with ‘Stars on Ice’ at the end of the month.

Here is our month-at-a-glance of Events in April and if you are looking for more ideas, the Family Fun Halifax calendar is always being updated with the latest events.
