Anchor Event for HarbourFest 2013
Pugwash Village is a vital partner in HarbourFest. They kindly offer us access to village-owned lands, the Cyrus Eaton stage, the Village Hall and other resources.
Pugwash HarbourFest recognizes the support of the Province of Nova Scotia. We are pleased to work in partnership with the province to develop and promote our culture resources for all Nova Scotians.
The NSLC supports HarbourFest through their “Celebrate Nova Scotia Talent” program. They host the NSLC Mainstage entertainment at Eaton Park. They also provide directional signage to our Festival., beautiful banners in each store province-wide, and plenty more publicity!
Basic Spirit is the lead sponsor this year of the “Basic Spirit Dragonboat Challenge.” We are pleased to have them on board!
The Municipality of Cumberland provides financial assistance in the way of community grants to our Festival. Thank you!
The Canadian Salt Company Limited has been a proud sponsor of HarbourFest since its inception. Not only do they support us financially, but they grant us use of the company owned wharf, making it possible to incorporate the Tall Ships visit every three years as a major part of Pugwash HarbourFest. We simply could not do it without their cooperation and support.
Scotiabank is a key sponsor for HarbourFest. Pugwash branch employees organize the annual Cake Auction, and contributed $5,000 this year yet again! Since 2006, when they came on board, Scotiabank has generated close to $100,000 for this event. Wow!
