Here at the deCoste we host a variety of special events throughout the year. We encourage you to check in periodically to see what's coming up.  


PLEASE NOTE:  It is with regret that we have had to cancel our 2022 Christmas at the deCoste Event this year due to our building gearing up for construction of the Pictou Library.  As a result of this construction, the event will not likely be available until 2024 or 2025 depending on how long construction takes. 


Christmas at the deCoste

One of our major fundraisers is our annual Christmas at the deCoste craft & food show. With close to forty vendors, it is one of the largest gift shows in Northern Nova Scotia. Approximately 1,500 customers attend each year. After a hiatus in 2020 & 2021, due to COVID-19, we are looking forward to welcoming back vendors and shoppers alike. 

Date: CANCELLED UNTIL 2024 OR 2025 for construction of new Cultural Hub.
Time: 10 am to 4 pm
Admission: $5
