ONGOING COMMUNITY EVENTS - 89.3 K-ROCK

Find ongoing events here that happen daily, year-round! Send your event by e-mail, events@893krock.com to be featured!


We're open! Following a lovely evening on Saturday, July 7, (sponsored by Derrick Kimball Law and K-Rock) with our first two shows, North Mountain Vanya and a musical Animal Farm by Fire,  we are now running the two shows Tuesday through Sunday. 

Elissa Barnard, a long-standing reviewer of theatre wrote:
"Two Planks and a Passion Theatre’s stimulating, enigmatic and intense production (of Vanya) at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts is heavily Russian in mood, character and dazzling period costumes...a mix of Samuel Beckett and Jerry Seinfeld – bleak and funny, essentially about nothing or everything." 
 

 

Firefly Eco Cabin Project - support by July 24!



You can support this exciting building project happening at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts!

The project is called The Firefly Eco Cabin Project. The idea behind the project is to build an Eco Cabin at the centre, which will serve as a learning space for sustainability. The term “Eco Cabin” refers to a cabin made from environmentally responsible building materials that is designed to be resource-efficient.


You can support the project's video and Kickstarter campaign by CLICKING HERE! The campaign runs until July 24!


The Firefly Eco Cabin Project would be a great example of how the Annapolis Valley is taking action towards a sustainable future.





New Haunts this 11th Year of Valley Ghost Walks

Now in their 11th year, Valley Ghost Walks are once again offering two-hour, family-friendly historical productions throughout the streets and cemeteries of various Annapolis Valley communities. Every Thursday until Halloween, Ghost Walks rotate between Wolfville, Kentville, and Windsor while also throwing into the mix a few Fridays in Halls Harbour and Saturdays at the Grand Pre Winery. There's also one indoor compilation show at the Cornwallis Inn in Kentville on Saturday, September 29.

New this year are two performances in late July at the Wolfville Anglican Church as part of their 200th anniversary celebrations. John Frederic Herbin, Mary Black, the Pratt sisters, Harry How, and many other ghostly parishioners will share their congressional contributions, made possible by the tremendous support of the Anglican Foundation of Canada.  

Not to be outdone, three performances of a new Hantsport Ghost Walk are happening in September and October, based on the incredible support of the Hantsport Memorial Community Centre. Come learn how this little ship-building town grew with the likes of Silas Rand, Hattie Chittick, Ben Jackson, Ann Churchill, and many others.

All tickets are available via Ticketpro.ca, at any Ticketpro outlets, or cash-only before the walks as available. All regular walks are $20 for adults or $15for students and seniors 65+, which includes HST and all fees. The Grapely Ghost Walks at the Grand Pre Winery are $25 with wine and $20 without. 

The Annapolis Valley is the most historically-rich amazing area in all of North America, come celebrate it with a Valley Ghost Walk! These historical productions are most suitable for ages 10+. For more information, contact Jerome the Gravekeeper: 902-692-8546 / jerome@valleyghostwalks.com / valleyghostwalks.com / Facebook & Instagram

 Summer Reading & Learning Challenge 2018

Berwick, Nova Scotia: Get ready to read! The Annapolis Valley Regional Library’s Summer Reading & Learning Challenge starts June 23. 

This summer, we will be tracking minutes read and we challenge students to read at least 20 minutes a day. When kids sign up online and log how many minutes they’ve read, they get to choose an avatar, leveling up as they read. Reading earns you prizes like stickers, buttons, and badges. 

Kids from birth to age twelve can register online or in person at their local library. It only takes a few minutes to sign up. Teens & Adults can participate as well.

Each week we will offer challenges online to earn ballots for Fun Passes to Upper Clements Parks, t-shirts, pool passes, and more. We have partnered with Oaklawn Farm Zoo to offer two days this summer when kids up to age 18 can get in free with their library card. Libraries across the valley have great programs lined up, such as storytimes, music, art, science, and technology.

The Summer Reading & Learning Challenge ends August 18. Signup ends August 4. Go to the Annapolis Valley Regional Library website at www.valleylibrary.ca to find all the details and to register. Those who pre-register online between June 16 – June 22 will be entered to win a Family Pass to NS Museums
