Reception at Pier 21 and Lobster Dinner with Dancing at the Cunard Centre

Join us in experiencing the sights, sounds and tastes of Halifax all in one evening. Begin your evening at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 where you’ll live through the moving journey that many families took to start a new life in Canada – do not miss this experience!* A few steps away on Pier 23 is the Cunard Centre. The Centre is a waterfront cargo shed which will be the stage for our lobster dinner. If you haven’t eaten Nova Scotia lobster in Nova Scotia, then you haven’t really eaten lobster! From the lobster parade to checkered tablecloths and local musical talent, you will be sure to have a memorable night!
