Event Planning

An Event in Antigonish

Event Planning in Antigonish

The Town of Antigonish values the economic, social, and cultural contributions events have on our community. The Town supports the development of these events and encourages community groups to consider hosting their event at a Town-owned facility.

The Town has created a Special Events Planning Guide to assist community groups through the event planning process.

If community groups are considering hosting a Parade or March, the Town has created a separate planning guide to assist groups through the process. To download the Parades and Marches Guide,  click here.
