  • 2500 - The parade square


Sensational Views Steeped in History

It’s one of the most iconic sights in Halifax, and creates a dramatic backdrop for any event. The skirl of the bagpipes and rhythm of the drums harken back to colonial days when the 78th Highlanders defended the city against naval attack from ironstone walls and ramparts. Guests can get a taste of garrison life while exploring the military museum, cells, barracks, and powder magazine.

Just as impressive as the star-shaped fortress are the sweeping city views and panoramic harbour vistas that will leave a lasting impression long after your guests have departed. Meeting spaces include the spacious Parade Square for exceptional outdoor tented functions. You could say Citadel Hill is really dynamite—soldiers fire a cannon daily to signal noontime to Haligonians.
