HALIFAX, Nova Scotia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MacFarlands Events announces today the opening of its cutting-edge new facility located at 461 Higney Avenue in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Situated on a 5.8-acre lot, the 21,000 sq. ft. facility features a showroom, offices, and warehouse area and has been designed to serve the Atlantic Canadian eventing community for years to come.

MacFarlands Events has supported Atlantic Canada’s event industry for over six decades with a leading assortment of party, furniture and tent rentals, passionate event design and execution professionals, and a deep commitment to delivering an extraordinary customer experience.

“The motivation driving this project was to invest in a modern facility specifically designed for future growth,” says Ryan MacDonald, General Manager of MacFarlands Events. “Having been located on Kempt Road for 30 years, this upgrade builds on MacFarlands’ rich legacy as we continue to invest in the Atlantic events industry and elevate the customer and employee experience. We’re proud of the eco-conscious practices and accessibility that this new location provides.”

The new modern facility includes an elegant showroom oriented around natural light, adjacent office space designed to maximize customer interactions, and a cutting-edge warehouse built explicitly for the event rental business. A reflection of MacFarlands’ commitment to the environment, the custom facility features LED lighting, modern HVAC systems and a switch from oil to natural gas.

“We have been a part of the Halifax community for over 60 years,” says MacDonald. “Throughout that time, we’ve been honoured to support the local community, and we will continue to invest in our local community through community groups such as Autism Nova Scotia, Ovarian Cancer Society, Phoenix Youth, the Tourism, Culinary, and Events Management programs at Nova Scotia Community College and many more.”

In 2019 MacFarlands Events partnered with Chair-man Mills Corp., Canada’s premier event solutions company. “We’re thrilled to open our new facility in Halifax,” says Allison Freeman, Chief Executive Officer, Chair-man Mills Corp. “This beautiful new space will enable continued investment in our people, product and technology and will further enhance our ability to deliver unparalleled service to loyal and new clients in Halifax and Atlantic Canada.”
