Town of Sackville sponsored events and tourism information will take priority in the kiosks, but we welcome Sackville community advertising material related to theatre, music, festivals, public lectures, exhibitions and other cultural events as space permits, provided the event is not affiliated with a political party or politically motivated. The kiosks are updated every Friday, wherever possible, and therefore material must be dropped off at Town Hall on Thursday by noon. Please keep in mind that there is limited space in the kiosks and as a result, it may not be possible to post all submitted material.

Please note that these kiosks are removed during the winter to make snow removal a little easier.

Can I have an open fire or fireworks in the Town?

Sorry, but for safety reasons, open fires or fireworks are not permitted in the Town of Sackville.
