Nova Scotia's Contra Time Dancers and Halifax Contra Dances are collaborating to organize and host a week-long Contra Dance Festival from September 27 to October 3, 2015 in Halifax, Prospect, and the Annapolis Valley. Contra Fest will include a combination of educational workshops for callers, musicians and dancers as well as outreach and community dance events. Dancers of all levels and beginners alike are welcome. No experience required.

The Nova Scotia Contra Fest organizing committee is one of seven groups across the United States and Canada awarded a community residency as part of a Centennial Tour by the arts and education organization the Country Dance & Song Society (CDSS), a national leader in promoting participatory dance, music and song that have roots in English and North American culture. This residency is part of a North American tour of community residencies by CDSS as part of their Centennial in 2015.
