Thursday October 30th
Wolfville “Valley Ghost Walk”
8 PM

“2 hour historical productions throughout the streets
and cemeteries of: Wolfville, Kentville, Windsor, & Halls Harbour.

A creatively spooky way to get a history lesson of a truly unique part
of the world.

There are many Annapolis Valley legends, both documented and folklore,
worthy of perpetuation. There have also been an abundance of
incredible people calling this neck of the woods home who have helped
to form the backbone of our dynamic towns. Join Jerome the GraveKeeper
and his ghostly friends as they inform and entertain throughout the
streets and cemeteries of: Wolfville, Kentville, Windsor, & Halls

At the same time, these tours are not intended to cause sudden heart attacks.
That would be bad for business.
It’s Family Friendly but, let’s not kid ourselves,
it’s a history lesson, not every kid is into history.

Reduce Your CHILLS, Please Dress Warmly!
The walks happen RAIN, SNOW or MOONSHINE
(bring an umbrella if need be)”

Buy tickets in person or at ticketpro.


TGIF/U-Club Halloween Party
Friday October 31st
4 PM – until you decide to go home!
Live Music by: Cabin Fever (starts around 6:30 PM)

Fruit & Veg Locavore Tasting Tour
Saturday, November 1st
9 am – 10:30 am

“These Farmers’ Market tours are for people who want to live the good
life right here in their own backyard. You’ll learn where to get the
best seasonal ingredients and get to know who’s who in the local food
scene. If you want the real dirt on living large in Wolfville come out
and dig in! Each guided tour lasts 1.5 hours, and includes a picnic
and a cloth shopping bag.

*Only $17 per person!
