Thursday, June 23, 2022 • Opening Reception & Dinner 
LobsterBash! 6:30-9:30pm

Our Conference Hosts have a Lobster-ific night planned for you!
Yarmouth is the home port for hundreds of lobster boats and is just one of the many harbours in South West Nova Scotia where you’ll find working waterfronts built around the fishing industry. Lobsters live on the bottom of the ocean but they’re at the top of the list as Nova Scotia's most valuable seafood export with over 600 million dollars created from this fishery alone. Lobster is king around here so we’re celebrating this amazing crustacean with a meal fit for royalty.

Join us for the LobsterBash, wharfside, at Rudder’s Restaurant and Brew Pub, Yarmouth’s biggest seafood eatery. You’ll dine on the best quality, most delicious and the freshest lobster in the world caught from our local waters. You’ll learn about the industry, cooking techniques and the race to the best fishing grounds at the start of the season each year.

Enjoy a fantastic Nova Scotia welcome at the LobsterBash!
Location: Yarmouth Waterfront/Rudder's Restaurant
Route Here.

Friday June 24, 2022  •  TMAC Dine Around
6-10pm, Digby Pines Golf Resort & Spa

Join us for an evening of culinary delights at the historic Digby Pines. This magnificent hotel was built in 1929 and is beautifully situated overlooking the Annapolis Basin. For almost 100 years, the “Pines” has been one of the best places to stay, eat, relax, and golf in Atlantic Canada. Digby Nova Scotia is home to amazing seafood and the world famous Digby Scallops so we think its a perfect spot to devour as much local food and drink as you can handle. We'll be meandering around this historic and picturesque property - be sure to dress comfortably!

The TMAC Dine Around will celebrate as many food and beverage producers as our hosts can squeeze on the site of the Digby Pines. The Dine Around is a mouthwatering culinary experience that represents the best flavours of South West Nova Scotia. 
Transportation to and from Digby Pines will be provided by motorcoach, departing from and returning to the Rodd Grand Hotel Yarmouth.
