What popular events take place in Nova Scotia?

The Canadian province of Nova Scotia is host to many annual events and festivals, attracting travellers worldwide. The most popular of these events include the Festival de la Mi Carême, Ha!ifax ComedyFest, and Halifax Busker Festival, all of which are accessible with flights to Nova Scotia. Festival de la Mi Carême is a two-hundred-year-old festival held every March, which celebrates music, dance, and Acadian culture, the descendants of the French who settled in the region in the 17th and 18th centuries. At the festival, people dress in disguises and visit neighbours who try to guess their identity. The people in costume are referred to as mi-carêmes. Once the guessing is over, the mi-carêmes reveal themselves before having a treat. The festival is held during the fourth Thursday of the Lent period before Easter. The Ha!ifax ComedyFest is held over four days every April. It brings together over 30 comedians from North America and Canada and is the longest-running comedy festival in Canada. The Halifax Busker Festival is held over six days at the end of July and early August and features hundreds of shows during this time. Musicians, acrobats, magicians, fire breathers, and other performers join this event from all parts of the world. You can access Nova Scotia flight deals in September to visit this vibrant city.
