Harvest Festival Schedule

Dear Members and Friends,

As you may have seen in the recent issue of the Chebucto News (copy attached) the SDBC in partnership with The Spryfield Urban Farm, Chebucto Connections, and the Spryfield YWCA and sponsored by many of our SDBC Members is hosting the first annual “Spryfield Village Harvest Festival”.

One of the main events of the Festival is the Spryfield and District Business Commission, “Business Expo” which is being held at the Spryfield Shopping Centre in conjunction with the festival. This is your invitation to participate in the “Business Expo”. It will be held on Saturday, September 28th, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Tables are only $20.00 and we look forward to advertising any specials or discounts you would like to offer in the next edition of the Chebucto News and in our promotional material. Please feel free to call or e-mail me to reserve your table.

As part of the festival the Business Commission is also creating the “Light Up Spryfield” initiative. We are asking each of our Member Businesses to frame their buildings with LED white lights and to turn them on, on the night of the opening of the festival, September 21st at 8:00p.m. and then continue to use them throughout the holiday season. We believe this will create a unique atmosphere in the Business District not experienced anywhere else in HRM.

We are partnering with Canadian Tire Spryfield on this initiative who will be discounting the lights by 10%, the SDBC will further discount them by another 15%. I will be contacting each of you in the coming weeks to confirm your participation and to find out how many strings of lights you will require to frame your building. We anticipate the cost will be minimal.

There are still opportunities to sponsor events, create an event or volunteer, just let me know.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at your convenience. I look forward to hearing from you.

Bruce Holland
Executive Director
Spryfield and District Business Commission
