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

March is one of my favourite months of the year. I know, it can be a big slushy mess out there but it’s when all things start to come to life again and we really do have lots to celebrate! Check out all the great family-friendly events in March… the clocks go ahead on March 13th to give us an extra hour for the sun to shine. St. Paddy’s Day is on March 17th and the HRCE March Break is March 14th – 18th. With all these exciting events, our calendar is packed with family-fun events. Spring is in the air and officially here on March 20th!

Here is our month-at-a-glance for Family-Friendly Events in March… and if you are looking for more ideas, the Family Fun Halifax calendar is always being updated with the latest events. Also, each Wednesday, we publish our ‘Weekend Roundup’ – family-friendly Halifax events for the upcoming weekend. Happy March, everyone!
