Each year in partnership with the Heritage Association of Antigonish, we host a guest lecture series in order to stimulate an interest in our heritage. Subjects may include biographical sketches, natural history, events, business and community stories. Similarly, the Association and Museum host book launches for new books which are linked to the heritage of eastern Nova Scotia.

During the summer months, weekly ceilidhs are held for locals and tourists alike. Learners and more seasoned performers bring traditional music of the fiddle, piano, pipes, guitar and more to the audience. The acoustics and architectural elements of the building provide an ambient setting.
