Event Programs & Supporters
Vandals Doughnuts will be doing a FEATURE Oceans Week HFX donut from June 1-9, 2019! Proceeds from these donut purchases will be going towards two charities to support the 2019 International World Oceans Day theme of "Gender and Oceans".
Proceeds will go towards the following:
1. Terranaut Club - "Terranaut Club is an antidote to boring, in-class, learn-from-the-textbook STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). We’re a non-profit organization that specializes in extra-curricular science and environmental education, bringing girls to the forefront of exciting, hands-on, immersive experiences in science and nature."
2. Back to the Sea Society - "Back to the Sea Society is a registered charity dedicated to sparking curiosity for local marine life off the coast of Nova Scotia and to fostering a desire to protect our ocean."
Drink Atlantic - This year the festival is on the first weekend in June, which coincides with Oceans Week HFX. The idea is to host pop-up charity bar for 4 nights, June 3, 4, 5 & 6. Drink Atlantic has pledged to go zero-waste and plastic-free during these dates and will be donating proceeds to the Marine Animal Response Society (MARS). All proceeds after costs would go to this charity.
"Drink Atlantic Cocktail Festival is a premier event celebrating and supporting the cocktail industry here in Halifax. Our city punches above its weight in the food and beverage industry with world-class cocktails being crafted right here! Featuring bottomless educational opportunities, unfathomable experiences, and showcasing the best of Nova Scotia product and talent, Drink Atlantic brings together the drinker, the maker, and the crafter, to concoct a holistic beverage experience and entice Halifax to drink better. Produced by The Coast and Clever Barkeep. All Drink Halifax events are for ages 19+."
The Halifax Central Library will be transforming the main lobby to celebrate Oceans Week HFX by hosting a ocean-themed book display for all ages, plus an interactive ocean art installation for everyone to participate! This display will be a part of the global "World Oceans Day" movement and theme of “Protect and Restore our Oceans”.
