Welcome to the NSPEC!

We are a 65 acre or 26 hectare agricultural property that rents our facilities out for a variety of functions including concerts and festivals. We also have the largest harness racing track in Nova Scotia with live harness racing from April to December and Simulcast Racing all year round! Every year in August we host the Nova Scotia Provincial Exhibition that showcases various agricultural shows and exhibits, demolition derby competitions, a large midway, live musical entertainment and vendors from all over the province; an exciting and fun family event!
Our property offers many unique features for your venue needs such as on-site camping and a central location; Truro is known as the Hub of Nova Scotia for this very reason! We can supply canteens or catered meals for your event upon request (additional charges may apply) and have ample parking.
We would love to brag about our property and all that it offers to those looking for an event venue; please contact us with any questions you may have: nspe@eastlink.ca .
We are a non-profit organization and we welcome any individual or group who wishes to partner with us and provide much needed volunteer help.  If  you are interested in becoming a volunteer for the NS Provincial Exhibition or the NSPEC, please use the form located under the About US TAB.

Nova Scotia 4-H Show

Since 1977 a different county or region has hosted the Nova Scotia 4-H Show.

This annual family event is an excellent opportunity for the public to experience the 4-H youth leadership program in an interactive way. The Nova Scotia 4-H Show offers something for everyone and visitors will see 4-H members demonstrate the technical, livestock and life skills they learned throughout the year. Since the first show, this event has grown to accommodate approximately 40 projects, 90 classes, 2400 entries and 10,000 visitors. The Nova Scotia 4-H Show is open to the public and admission is free.
