For seven years, Saltscapes has been welcoming folks who love Atlantic Canada's unique lifestyle to the largest consumer lifestyle show on Canada's east coast. The pages of Saltscapes magazine come alive at Expo.

As you stroll by and meet the more than 400 exhibitors, you'll hear the sounds of talented Atlantic Canadian musicians all day long. More than 100 presentations and demonstrations are also on the Expo agenda. There's even a Taste of Nova Scotia Culinary Competition where eight talented chefs will compete for top honours.

New for 2011: our "Be A Junior Chef!" competition, plus "Cooking with Kids," with the Nova Scotia Egg Producers and the Dairy Farmers of Canada. Twice daily, kids aged 5-9 and 10-15 can participate in hands-on cooking classes, with prizes for participants and audience members.

A highlight of the Living Healthy in Atlantic Canada section will be the "giant colon" exhibit—an interactive educational display that visitors can walk through to learn about colon health!

So plan your time, gather your friends and plan a visit to Expo to visit, buy and enjoy!
