The Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo is a week-long event held every year in Nova Scotia. This year will mark the 36th anniversary of the Tattoo.
The two-and-a-half hour family show is fast-paced – every scene only lasts about 3-6 minutes, so there is always something new to see and experience. Looking for a taste of true Nova Scotia? There’s bagpipes, highland dancers, la culture de l’acadie and military traditions.
Hoping for something more modern? The Tattoo also features innovative acrobatic acts, modern music, contemporary dancing, trampoline routines and cutting-edge videos.
There's also workshops and festival events all free!
This event is for everybody! Young and old alike will enjoy this spectacular display. It is for tourists and locals, children and seniors, students and parents, couples and families. It is for you….
The Tattoo Festival includes:
A series of free noon-time concerts, parades and performances take place in various locations around the city, principally focused on the Spring Garden Road Area, but also taking place in the Waterfront, Grand Parade and other venues further afield. These happen most days during the run of the Tattoo.
July 1st is Canada's birthday and we help celebrate with a gigantic parade featuring the entire cast, right through the heart of the city.
The cast of the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo includes people of all ages and backgrounds. Featuring military, police and civilian performers, the show is a true partnership. You will see and hear pipes and drums, military and civilian bands, historic re-enactments, dancers, acrobats, choirs, military displays and competitions, drama, comedy and more.
The participants are without a doubt, the best in the world at what they do and they come from all over the world to take part.
