We are SO excited! We have an incredible lineup of musicians all day, taking us to our campfire and the Fireworks!

Canada Day at Ross Creek is a celebration of the diversity of cultures that make Canada wonderful, reflected in the people right here at Ross Creek. This year, our food, music, and arts activities on Canada Day reflect some of the places we come from!

With a canteen in the afternoon of foods from the cultures of our staff (El Salvador, Scotland, Ireland, China, and Indonesia), plus hot dogs, and cake, and live performance and workshops with artists including Cristian Quirivan from Chile, Drummers and Dancers from Senegal and Zimbabwe, multi-instrumentalists Saeed Fouroughi and Mohammad Sahraei from Iran, the amazing Ryan Roberts from down the road, and the incomparable Ian Sherwood, fresh from his British tour, it’s going to be a fabulous day!

See here for our full line-up and schedule!


Please join us for our Gallery Opening July 1.

We hope you can join us to meet Vancouver-based internationally acclaimed artist Gu Xiong for the opening of

interior migrations:
International Migrant Workers on Canadian Farmland


This photographic installation by Gu Xiong comes to us after being at the Art Gallery of Ontario, and reflects Gu’s friendships and connections to migrant workers in a way that will be familiar to our agricultural community, and which provides an extraordinary portrait of the workers who are vital to the success of Canada’s food producers.

We can’t imagine a better show to launch on Canada Day, as we explore where Canada comes from and where it is going, and who makes it work. Gu Xiong is a Chinese-Canadian Artist dedicated to migrant issues and global flows of culture, ideas, and identity. He is in residence at Ross Creek now, and will be in attendance at the opening, and this is his first exhibit in Nova Scotia, and we look forward to introducing him to our local and arts  community.

We are grateful to the Canada Council for the Arts and the Province of Nova Scotia for their support of this exhibition.

Exhibition Opening with the artist: Monday July 1, 1pm — 4pm
