SAVE THE DATE!

This new annual gathering over the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend is for people passionate about the East Coast and the innovation and growth of our agricultural and agri-food industry. It’s a festival, it’s an exhibition and an opportunity to learn about new farming practices, innovation and opportunities in the regional agricultural economy and the world-class, sustainable products that come from our land and our waters.

A large food, beverage and homegrown retail marketplace will join with a multi-disciplined agricultural exhibition in creating a one of kind consumer experience. This five-day agricultural and seafood extravaganza during the beautiful harvest season is not to be missed.

With something for everyone, this event is the festival of Atlantic Canada’s countryside that celebrates the “feel good” farm experiences, healthy and delicious local food, a large fun-filled midway, daily colourful livestock shows, working farm dogs in action, a large homegrown retail exhibitor village, East Coast music showcase with local wine, beer and spirits, an agricultural innovation and science showcase, an important educational motivator for young and old alike; plus, hands-on outdoor activities guarantee that there is something for the whole family!

The Saltscapes Expo team, in partnership with Atlantic Agricultural Fall Fair society, will present a turn-key activation of programming and activities that showcase Atlantic Canada’s agricultural economy and culture while providing an entertaining and interactive environment for all ages.

A message from AAFF Chairman, David Logie

Greetings,
As a long time volunteer with the former Maritime Fall Fair, it is great honour to be at the helm of this exciting and timely undertaking for a revitalized world class event under a registered non profit society that will henceforth be called, the Atlantic Agricultural Fall Fair.

Agriculture is one of the traditional rural industries that provides the essential foundations for Atlantic Canada’s rural economy. Spin-off industries, such as the agri-food processing sector, also contribute significantly to the region’s economy, in terms of value-added products and employment; as does the rapidly-growing craft beverage alcohol (wine, beer and spirits) industry.

The green economy and the local foods movement offer significant opportunities for business development to take advantage of the growing demand for sustainable products and services. Together, these industries make up a strong and sustainable agricultural economy for eastern Canada.

In addition to the consumer and trade agenda for our new event, we will be profiling the extraordinary science and innovation being conducted at Atlantic Canadian post secondary educational institutions. We hope to inspire both mature and younger public education students to look at the wonderful opportunities to be educated and to live & work in this important sector, right here on Canada’s beautiful east coast.

On behalf of the Atlantic Agricultural Fall Fair executive committee , I invite you to join us and all factions of Atlantic Canada’s unduplicated agricultural sector to create an irresistible consumer, trade and stakeholder exposition of the world class farming industry, with the newly revitalized Atlantic Agricultural Fall Fair commencing in October 2016 in the region’s largest economic, business and education capital, Halifax.

Save the date...Oct 6- 10, 2016!

Yours in Agriculture,

David Logie
Chairman
Atlantic Agricultural Fall Fair Society.
