Tide Fest is organized by a volunteer board that comprises a registered not-for-profit group, the 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, including representatives from organizations who contribute events as part of the weekend. 

A variety of local organizations have had a hand in making Tide Fest possible over the years, including Hants North Minor Baseball Association, Shooters Bar & Grill, Renfrew Strength & Conditioning Centre, E-Commerce Solutions by Canucks, the Municipality of East Hants, Enfield Rugby Club, and many more listed on our sponsorship page.

Since Tide Fest has become a reality, there has been a consistent commitment to ensuring the event is community-focused, allowing for wide participation to instill a sense of community and bring residents together for a common cause. All funds raised go to back into planning future events, and benefitting organizations such as the East Hants Sportsplex, local food banks, local schools, and the East Hants Family Resource Center, just to name a few.
