On this 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, Halifax will be commemorating the event and the role the city played in the aftermath of the disaster. Destination Halifax helps connect Nova Scotians and visitors with this historic milestone through event listings, an animated site map, and other unique features available on its website.
Close to 40 events are being held in Halifax spanning the entire month of April, many of which are free to the public. The deeply-rooted Halifax Titanic connection will be honoured through concerts, theatrical productions, museum and virtual exhibits, tours and culinary experiences, and art and literature. This wide range of programming embraces Halifax’s unique culture and history while underscoring the impact the Titanic story continues to have on Halifax and the world.
Those who are unable to attend the anniversary events can look forward to experiencing Halifax’s Titanic history whenever they visit by touring the Titanic Exhibit sites and viewing the artifacts permanently on display in the city. Meeting planners looking to offer their delegates a Titanic experience can access local suppliers, products and venues that specialize in this area.
As the scene for the last chapter in the Titanic story, Halifax is one of several “Titanic Cities” around the world that will be commemorating the anniversary of the loss of the renowned liner. All of the Titanic Cities – Belfast, Liverpool, Southampton, Cherbourg, Cobh and Halifax – have a strong and direct connection with the life of RMS Titanic.
