Celebrate Autumn in Halifax, Nova Scotia

Fall is a beautiful time to be in Halifax, Nova Scotia! The East Coast city has warm crisp air, colorful leaves, and fantastic festivals and events, including Nocturne, Halifax Urban Folk Festival, and Hal-Con.

Nocturne is an outdoor visual art festival that brings art and energy to the streets of Kjipuktuk/Halifax each year, lighting up the nights from October 12-15. Installations, visual arts, performances, and eventgoers will fill the shops and streets, creating a magical night that can't be missed.

The Halifax Urban Folk Festival (HUFF) is happening this year from September 24-October 1. This festival takes place between two venues for the duration of the festival and aims to celebrate songwriters and the songs they create.

Hal-Con Sci-Fi & Fantasy Convention is Atlantic Canada's biggest sci-fi and gaming convention, happening this year from October 27-29. The event features a jam-packed schedule complete with panels, games, and workshops, and has featured guests such as Oded Fehr, Arthur Darvill and many more.
