Community groups sponsor many Annapolis Dinners and Breakfast throughout the Annapolis Valley. While you are visiting the Valley make sure you take in a few of these. As long as you like home cooked meals and friendly people you will be glad you did.
Many of these are annual events held around the same time each year to celebrate a special occasion or event in the valley area.
I will show a list here of the ones I know about and add to it as I find more. Occasionally some of these may stop being held, or the date and times change so I recommend you check local papers, web sites or call ahead to check on dates and timings for any Annapolis Dinners, Lunches or Breakfast.
The best way to start a day is by enjoying a nutritious breakfast in the company of good friends and neighbors. Saturday mornings seem to be the tradition for the regular community breakfast, but Sunday morning before Church is also popular during special celebrations and festivals. Take the time to stop in for some good food and you will be welcomed with great hospitality.

The many communities throughout the valley like to celebrate and hold several events and festivals. One of the biggest features at these festivals over the years has been their pancake breakfasts. Take note what festivals and events are going on and look for a schedule that will tell you where their breakfasts are being held.
The people of the Annapolis Valley love to get together, love to visit with their neighbours and friends around town.
Therefore teas and Luncheons in the valley are very popular. Every week you will find a tea or luncheon going on somewhere, even more popular in the spring time after the long winter.
It is very hard for me to keep up with them all, it would be a full time job. The best way to find out what ones are going on is to keep an eye on your local paper each week. Look in the local community events pages and you are sure to find a long list in your area.

The Annapolis Valley people enjoy many different harvest during the year. There is the harvest of both the sea and of the land. After every one of them it has been a long tradition here in the valley to hold Annapolis Dinners to celebrate the harvest.
Festivals are also very plentiful in the Annapolis Valley, going on all through the year. These also give the people of the valley a reason to hold an Annapolis Dinner.
Again I advise you to keep watch in your local paper or online event calendars to check dates and time and to check for other Annapolis Dinners happening through the year, but here is a list of some I have heard about.
