The Maritime Experience & Audience


Evening in the Maritimes is known as Ottawa-Gatineau’s East Coast Kitchen Party where guests experience all that Canada’s East Coast has to offer.

The evening starts with a lively cocktail reception featuring a roaming fiddler, displays featuring carefully curated silent auction items up for bid, a selection of mocktails, cocktails, champagne, and other libations, and interactive activities including a SHELL-fie station courtesy of our sponsors.

The fun continues with a bagpiper dining room entrance, a delicious 4-course meal (choice of a traditional lobster dinner, beef tenderloin, or seared chickpea and sundried tomato griddle cake), the popular Sea Creature Sweepstakes, an interview with members of the community who will share their story of how the money raised at EiTM has impacted their lives, and the most anticipated event of the evening – a live auction hosted by Ryan Watson of Raise the Bid.

The Maritimes theme is woven throughout the event as guests engage in provincial trivia and choose their preferred seating in the Nova Scotia, PEI or NB Zones.
