Come Home East Hants Association
Incorporated with the Province in July 2016, the Come Home East Hants Association is a non-profit society formed of community volunteers, and includes key stakeholders from different local organizations. The Tide Fest concept originated from a partnership between the East Hants Sport Heritage Society, and the East Hants Sportsplex in December 2015, where both organizations felt a homecoming festival that coincided with Canada 150 was a beneficial project to undertake.
A variety of local organizations have had a hand in making Tide Fest possible through 2017 and 2018, including Hants North Minor Baseball Association, Shooters Bar & Grill, Renfrew Strength & Conditioning Centre, E-Commerce Solutions by Canucks, the Municipality of East Hants, and many more listed on our sponsorship page.
Since the Tide Fest concept has become a reality, there has been a consistent commitment to ensure this event is community focused, allowing for wide participation, and showcasing the best of what we offer as a local area.
