The Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo started with a drumbeat and the skirl of the pipes on June 28, 1979. First held to celebrate the International Gathering of the Clans (and opened by The Queen Mother) the Tattoo quickly became a beloved event on the summer calendar and has evolved into a week-long spectacle proudly supported by the Canadian Armed Forces, the Government of Canada, the Province of Nova Scotia, the City of Halifax, and many corporate partners.
This two-and-a-half-hour show features the best of the best pipes, drums, bands, dancers, singers, choirs, acrobats, military pomp and historical displays anywhere in Atlantic Canada. There’s something for everyone at the Tattoo!
Aside from being a part of one of the most exciting summer events in Halifax, you will come away with a sense of pride and patriotism by having contributed to the success of this world-renowned event. You will meet people from many different countries and no doubt make many new friends.
