If you have not seen the Tattoo before you are missing a great show, make sure that you either buy your tickets at the superstore or Ticket Atlantic. I only paid $25.00 for our seat and there is not a bad seat in the place,...More
We have been visiting the Tattoo as a family for over 15 years and thoroughly enjoy it every year. We would have liked more marching bands this year (particularly my Grandfather who is a veteran), but we all really enjoyed some of the new acts,...More
We were so excited to get tickets to see what a military tattoo was all about! We thoroughly enjoyed the whole performance - we enjoyed the military music being mixed with the smaller acts; we loved how the smaller acts helped create areas of darkness...More
A mix of military acts as well as other acts that are purely entertainment. My favorites moments was the honoring the Canadian Veterans, the acrobats from Kenya, German cyclists and Russian dancers. But enjoyed them all. If you are in Halifax around Canada Day, this...More
I travel a thousand miles to hear and see military music, not novelty acts. I would prefer the tattoo stay true to that. Honor the military for their sacrifices. Let their bands entertain with marches, classical music, music native to their home countries, show tunes...More

We went to the show on Canada Day...More

Seeking some advice about possible itinerary for early July (14 Replies)
Hello: I've read through many of the itineraries on this forum and they have been most helpful. I realize that I'm a little late in the game regarding booking flights and accommodations, but my wife and I would like to visit Nova Scotia/Cape Breton Island in early July of 2018. We would potentially fly into Halifax on Friday 6/29 or Saturday 6/30. I'm not sure regarding departures, but probably the following Saturday or possibly Sunday if we decide to go to the Antigonish Highland Games. ...More

I've looked at the schedule . The best fiddlers are at the Doryman on the Saturday and then Ashley MacIsaac on the Monday. Both of those will sell out fast or else get there an hour ahead .
