The Halifax Seaport is a vibrant arts and cultural district found at the south end of the Halifax waterfront. Extending from Piers 19 to 23, you will find artisans, retailers, cruise terminals, event facilities, cafés, galleries, offices, a museum, a university and a farmers’ market. This district has been redeveloped to showcase local talent and is now a popular destination for locals and visitors alike. We invite you to discover the Halifax Seaport!
At the heart of the Halifax Seaport you will find the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 and the Dockside Shops at Pavilion 22, a vibrant and friendly open-concept market that brings "the best of Nova Scotia" to your fingertips. You will find a wide variety of retailers and artisans offering the best handcrafted products including jewelry, gifts, apparel, accessories and signature items. Next to Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 is the Mary E. Black Gallery, Nova Scotia's only public gallery with a fine craft mandate, hosting local, regional, national and international fine craft exhibitions year round. In the Immigration Annex you will find Del Sol the shop "where everything changes colour", Seeds Gallery a shop for NSCAD University's student and alumni work, Garrison Brewery, Halifax's largest independent microbrewer where you can sample a variety of full flavored, all natural, preservative free ales or grab a cup traditionally roasted coffee at the Java Factory Roasting Company, Nova Scotia’s premiere specialty coffee roaster. As you stroll along Harbourwalk South you can sample local food at the Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market.
