Community organizers have decided to reschedule the event at most locations 
for Sunday, Aug. 30, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m, due to the hurricane forcast on 
August 23.

"We respect the voices of the picnic planners in our rural communities who 
have told us that going forward this weekend is not the best option due to 
the pending hurricane forecast," said Agriculture Minister John MacDonell. 
"We are confident that Nova Scotians will support our decision and come out 
on August 30th to celebrate and enjoy fresh, local food."


Sunday August 30th, 2009 from 11 am - 3 pm, create a picnic lunch from local 
foods being sold by farmers and restaurants at the picnic sites.

Leave the day-to-day routine behind and get back to the roots of family, 
community, nature and good food. Food, live music, and children's activities 
will ensure this is a memorable experience for you, your family, and 

By choosing local foods, Nova Scotians are making a difference for our 
farmers, for our economy and for our way of life. Enjoy fresh, favourful 
meals that are easy to prepare and take advantage of excellent and readily 
available local ingredients.
