Home in Halifax is a 1993 live album by Stan Rogers. It was recorded by the CBC during a concert Rogers performed at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax, Nova Scotia in March 1982, 11 years prior. The concert was put together as a live radio and T.V. broadcast celebrating Rogers' annual appearance at the Cohn. The stage was decorated with a ship's mast, wheels, lobster traps and fishing nets.

A release the previous year, titled "In Concert" and released on CBC's "Variety Recordings" label, featured a different track listing of material from the same concert.
