Charles Macdonald is 150 this year! We're going to celebrate like it's 1874. 

Mark June 2nd on your calendar, for an old-fashioned birthday party at the Concrete House! 

We have a lot more to celebrate than just Charlie’s birthday. After four long years we are finally closing in on completing the Concrete House Restoration. The Concrete House is looking fantastic with a newly renovated Hazelwood Gallery, heating and air conditioning, a new roof, foundation repairs, new patio, landscaping, and many more updates. This is your opportunity for a tour and to share in this community achievement.

Opening a month earlier than usual we are starting the summer of 2024 with an old fashion party featuring games, live music, refreshments, and a unique art exhibit.

In the newly renovated Hazelwood Gallery is an exhibit of the Mini Teapot Cottage Project. Over 30 Nova Scotia artists have created works of art from a miniature maquette of Charlie’s long lost Teapot Cottage. Each Mini Cottage is a unique work of art for sale with proceeds going towards finishing our restoration.


Bring a picnic and some folding chairs to enjoy live music from local band Slowcooker. Slowcooker is a collaborative project between musician and composer Jude Pelley and musician Amy Lounder, who is a member of The Old Beef String Band. Jude and Amy will be entertaining the crowd from 1:30 to 3:30 with old fashion jigs and reels reflecting Scottish and Irish origins.

This event is for the whole family with games Charlie might have played back when he was a child. We will have checkers, pick up sticks, egg toss, and more. This is a welcome break from screen time and a chance to get to know your community.

Come to Centreville for the day. There will be a car show down the street at 65 Saxon Street and a chicken barbecue at the Woodville Community Centre, 342 Bligh Road Woodville


Make a day of it, visit the car show in the morning, music and art at the Concrete House in the afternoon, and chicken dinner in Woodville.
