A family tradition for 26 years! Kick off the season by sharing some holiday cheer with the 78th Highlanders. Make your way to the Halifax Citadel as the historic fort takes on a festive air with Victorian carols, crafts, games and, of course, Father Christmas. Enjoy some hot cider and don’t miss our Victorian photo booth - it’s the perfect way to capture some holiday magic to share with family and friends. 

New this year! Bring in family photos, letters, medals, or other military memorabilia and have the Army Museum’s team of experts help you uncover the service history of your family member just in time for the holidays!

Admission is free with a donation to FEED NOVA SCOTIA (non-perishable food item or cash donation). Presented by Radio 96-5, Atlantic Fabrics Crafts & More and Parks Canada.

Create your own greetings with the Victorian photo booth!
