On Sunday, September 10th, 2006 from 10:00am-5:00pm, the Ecology Action 
Centre’s Food Action Committee will be holding their Third Annual September 
Harvest Festival in Victoria Park (Spring Garden Rd.) in downtown Halifax. 
This event will be free to the public in an effort to promote and celebrate 
locally grown food in a festive environment. 

The goal of the event is to foster connections between food producers and 
those that purchase their products. A variety of farmers and food 
enthusiasts will be on hand with an array of delicious foods produced in 
Nova Scotia. People will have the opportunity to interact with producers in 
an informal and celebratory setting, ask questions, as well as to sample and 
purchase available products. This highly anticipated, festival-style event 
will include live music, theatre, guest speakers, games and food sampling. 
This event is sure to whet your appetite and leave us better informed about 
the value of local food, and our ability to shape current agriculture 
practices through our purchasing decisions. 

The festival will feature local musical talents : Verbal Warning, The Museum 
Pieces, The Wilderbeats, The Dirty Poets, Old Man Ludecke, Eric Fresia & The 
OffSrings & David Myles. 

We are also planning on holding demonstrations such as apple cider pressing, 
and cooking demos with local chefs. 

We are delighted to invite local producers and businesses to participate in 
the Harvest Festival by hosting a table in Victoria Park (a busy, downtown 
location) to promote their farm or business, sell items, and to interact 
with customers directly. Alongside producers, there will be a variety of 
local interests groups at the event with information surrounding food 
politic. Last years event proved an enormous success reaching over 2,000
