The Roscoe A. Fillmore Memorial Picnic was established in 1978 to commemorate the life and work of Roscoe A. Fillmore, a well-known socialist and labour activist from Centreville, Nova Scotia. The first picnic was held in July 1978 at the home of Kaye and Charlie Murray in Lower Sackville. It was attended by more than 200 friends and admirers. At the inaugural picnic, Dane Parker read Ken Leslie's poem "There Is A Man Within." The picnics have continued on a semi-annual basis since 1978. The most recent picnic was held on July 10, 2010 at the Charles MacDonald Concrete House Museum in Centreville, Nova Scotia.
