For Second Year – Wolfville declared one of the Top Culture Destinations in the Maritimes
For Immediate Release
September 27, 2013
Wolfville, NS – The Wolfville Business Development Corporation (WBDC) is honored to announce that Wolfville has been declared, again by CBC TV, as one of the top ten cultural destinations in the Maritime Provinces.
On last evening’s CBC Television production of Maritimes Cultureville, host Colleen Jones highlighted the many distinct cultural attributes of ten Maritime communities. The selection of communities was based on submissions by Maritimers and an evaluation by CBC. Wolfville, along with the Village of Canning, were in this year’s top ten culturally vibrant communities in the Maritime Provinces.
CBC TV celebrated Wolfville as the home of Acadia University and Al Whittle Theatre where music and theatre are “nurtured” and as a community where “artist genius shines”. It also accentuated Wolfville’s slow food and wine experiences as offering new economic growth opportunities for Wolfville and its surrounding communities.
Wolfville is a fertile culture of both the head and the hands, influenced as much by academia as the soil. It has a sense of confidence and creativity that keeps it charged with a unique brand of energy. Wolfville sets the stage now for world class experiences ranging from distinctive boutiques, world class accommodations and dining to the Wolfville Magic Winery Bus, Deep Roots Music Festival, Devour! The Food Film Fest and much more.
“We are delighted to receive this important recognition and equally proud of the renowned reputation that Wolfville is developing,” said David Hovell, Executive Director, WBDC. “As we continue our work to establish Wolfville as the premier food and wine destination of the Atlantic Provinces, it is exciting to see opportunities to grow enterprise in Wolfville emerging.”
The Wolfville Business Development Corporation is an independent corporation that represents the interests of Wolfville businesses and business people. It is funded directly by Wolfville businesses and works in partnership with the Town of Wolfville, Acadia University and business owners. WBDC promotes Wolfville through marketing initiatives aimed to create a positive profile for the Town and increasing business activity.
