Experience A Taste Of Edmundston

Located in the northeastern section of the Appalachian Mountains, you’ll find Edmundston, New Brunswick nestled between the province of Quebec and the state of Maine (USA). It’s here — at the edge of the New Brunswick “panhandle” — you’ll experience Brayon and Acadian culture at its best.

Though this French speaking town is small in size, there’s no denying it certainly is big on personality. Whether you’re putting up your feet at one of our charming accommodations or dining on a delicious ploye (pancake) at our Farmers’ Market, you will feel a touch of our hospitality in very part of your visit.

If you’re in mood to spend some time in nature, you’re in luck; Edmundston is home to a treasure trove of outdoor adventure. Along the flowing waters of the Saint John River you can discover the secrets of our untamed backcountry. Primarily used for log driving during 1930–1960, today this river is host to a flurry of excitement by tube, canoe and kayak.

On land, you can find more adventure at the Botanical Gardens, or at one of the many parks. At Petit Temis Interprovincial Linear Park there is a bike path for everyone to enjoy. Connecting New Brunswick and Québec, the park boasts 134 kilometers of bike trails weaving through the picturesque
countryside. Edmundston is also home to tons of great paths for trekking and golf enthusiasts are guaranteed an unforgettable experience at the Edmundston Fraser Golf Club.

After working up an appetite it’s time to satisfy your cravings with some of Edmundston’s rich culinary offerings. Capture an authentic taste of the region with specialties from Acadie Gourmet, a group of agribusinesses in the area who use local products including producers, food processors, restaurants and boutiques. Everywhere you turn delicious surprises await. The Madawaska Ploye (pancake) on Saturday mornings at the Farmers’ Market, to local craft beers at Petit Sault Brewers and the vegetarian fare at Café Bistro Lotus Bleu, Edmundston is a culinary hotspot bound to impress.

If you’re a lover of all things culinary, the summer is a particularly good time to visit the region as the local tourism office offers a guided walking Foodie Tour in the downtown area. Combining history with scrumptious treats, you can taste a few of our most beloved local products while learning all about the storied past of the region.

Whether you’re exploring the majesty of the great outdoors or getting acquainted with our extraordinary culinary scene, Edmundston’s distinctive charm will have you coming back for more.
