Night of Adventure is a speaker series that explores the human spirit through human powered adventures. The events feature speakers that share inspiring stories with different themes each event. NOA is a night to hear about adventures, meet new people, learn new skills, and be inspired. We are an inclusive community and aims to have equal representation at all our events.
We love the outdoors and want NOA to be a place to share and discover your passions.
NOA was created in 2013 by Dave Greene and Adrien Rawley in Wolfville, Nova Scotia in a small 30-seat room above the Al Whittle Theatre.
Today the events happen mostly in Halifax (Cole Harbour) from November to May at North Brewing Taproom, with a special Wolfville show each year inside the 160 seat Al Whittle Theatre.
The events are co-hosted by Dave Greene (Greener Adventures) and Chris Surette (A for Adventure). Join our community on facebook, or our mailing list to stay in the loop
