We're gearing up once again for our Annual Boardwalk Artists Interactive Art event for Saturday, June 30, 6-9pm!

We also welcome food vendors!

In light of our astounding success last year, we're continuing our partnership with the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo and Downtown Dartmouth and coordinating one heck of a Canada Day EVE Celebration of Music and Art!!

• The Royal Nova Scotia Tattoo will be hosting 9 groups of International performers with scheduled appearances throughout the Downtown Dartmouth Core

• The Downtown Dartmouth Business Commission is closing Portland Street for a
Street Party full of performance and family activities

• Alderney Landing is hosting Art in the Park on the Ferry Terminal Side with tonnes of large scale interactive community art projects for everyone - Mural painting, Canadian Wildlife Sculpture Park, Live Music, Dance Station, Balloons, games and prizes!

• We're hosting a huge Art and Craft Market inside the Alderney Landing Market Area.

• To top it all off The Great Race will be finishing at Alderney Landing during our event which means our grounds will be host to over 100 vintage automobiles!

This event is going to be wildly successful. I'm happy to extend the opportunity
to you to be a part of it.

This event is a success thanks to the support of Heritage Canada.

Departures: The Geary Street Cemetery Interactive Media Tour

Media artist Leola LeBlanc, in collaboration with local youth, created Departures: The Geary Street Cemetery Interactive Media Tour, an interactive on-line map and interactive walking tour of the Geary Street Cemetery that is accessible to youth and the public. The tour and map will be incorporated into curriculum created for Elementary, Junior High and High School students in collaboration with Alderney Landing’s Bluenose Ghosts Festival. (approx. 145 schools will be invited to participate)

The project has created an interactive map and tour filled with creative information relating to the historical significance of the Geary Street Cemetery.

Unfortunately, at this time the platform this tour was created on no longer exists. We are looking into an alternative solution. Thank you for your patience.
