Halifax Waterfront

Learn about Canada’s naval and military heritage from the time of Confederation and through the world wars. Chat with costumed interpreters aboard HMCS Acadia and on the pier. Watch cannon and rifle demonstrations, learn about medicine during the First World War, and see if you can resist the temptations of a recruiting sergeant.

Be sure to drop into the Parks Canada Plaza located at the wave and find out what's new at all of our Atlantic Canada sites this summer! Pick up your FREE Parks Canada Discovery Pass, get an airbrush tattoo, meet our roving beaver mascot Parka, and more!

#HFXBlueWave

Halifax Harbour

A new feature of the Tall Ships gathering is a unique community opportunity to participate in a Dalhousie University led, blue wave, as part of the Parade of Sail. We’re asking everyone attending the Parade of Sail to wear blue on both sides of the Harbour as we wave farewell to the fleet with a celebration of our ocean pride.
