The North Star Arena has been an integral part of the thirteen communities it services since it opened in 1971. These communities include North Rustico, Rusticoville, Rustico, New Glasgow, Oyster Bed Bridge, Wheatley River, Hunter River, Cavendish, Hope River, Mayfield, Brackley, Breadalbane and St. Ann’s.
The current North Star Arena is in its 49th year of operation but is in need of replacement. In July 2020, $6.8M in federal and provincial funding was announced to support constructing a new multi-use, year-round facility that will service the North Star Arena community for the next 50 years. While we did receive funding, the total cost of building a brand-new facility is nearly $10M, leaving us to raise approximately $3.2M.
