On October 12, 2019, Halifax Central Library hosted its second FRESHFest, a festival-style exploration of all things food.

FRESHFest brings together many of our partners to continue efforts to increase food literacy in Halifax and celebrate the many unique flavours of Nova Scotia. The full-day event featured hands-on activities, cooking demonstrations, education, games, and plenty of delicious food discovery.
