After dinner attendees are encouraged to join us at the Olde Dublin Pub for some authentic live East Coast music! The Olde Dublin has been showcasing some of Atlantic Canada's premiere entertf

Thursday – Scavenger Hunt, Silent Auction and Outside Entertainment at Peakes Quay

With added opportunities to explore historic Charlottetown, a fun scavenger hunt that will take you around to explore some of the city's most exciting areas. Delegates will be encouraged to take photos / "selfies" of specific monuments and buildings around the city for an opportunity to win a prize at the evening reception! Delegates will also have the chance to check out a few of the local boutique shops and unique neighbourhoods that make up the beautiful city!

During the evening reception back at the Fairholm Inn Grand Room, attendees will be encouraged to participate in the annual silent auction to raise funds for a local charity. In addition, the attendee that manages to visit the most spots on the scavenger hunt AND take the most creative photos will win a prize. Please note: You MUST return to the Fairholm Inn by 4:30 PM SHARP in order to qualify for the prize.

Peakes Quay Restaurant and Bar is one of Charlottetown's most iconic restaurants!  After dinner feel free to hang out, enjoy some local drinks and listen to the live music that is often part of the Peakes experience!  Peakes is located right on the waterfront and has brilliant views of the harbour and the sunset.  This your last chance to network as a group, so make the most of it!
