Posted in Halifax Festivals & Events|Halifax History


April 15, 2012 marks the 100th Anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. Halifax, Nova Scotia played a large role in the days following the disaster. We were the first port city called to help in the rescue and recovery of the passengers and wreckage.

In honour of the centennial anniversary, Halifax is hosting several commemorative events during the month of April and continuing throughout the summer months. During the anniversary events, visitors in Halifax can stay at the Westin Nova Scotian Halifax Hotel for 20% off the best available rate. To book your Halifax accommodations, visit us online:

In addition, elements on hollis Halifax restaurant located in the Westin Nova Scotian will be offering a Commemorative Titanic Dinner with local inspiration. Make your reservations for the downtown Halifax restaurant from Thursday April 12th to Monday April 16th. To find out more, click here.
