Halifax is the largest city in Atlantic Canada. It marries rich maritime history with a modern energy to welcome vessels and visitors with the best of old and new. Against the backdrop of a bustling commercial harbour, Halifax is proud to host the grand Tall Ships again. It has also received numerous awards, including Port of the Year.

The city’s historic waterfront is anchored by one of the world’s longest urban boardwalks – home to small local businesses, farmer’s markets, adventures by land and sea, and North America’s oldest saltwater ferry system. The Tall Ships Regatta will showcase the best of Nova Scotia through music, culinary, historical and family friendly experiences on both sides of the harbour and in outport communities around the province.
