Fredericton is a city inspired by nature, history, design and art. Canada’s Most Stored River paints the backdrop to over 115 kilometres of riverside trails connecting historic landmarks and cultural treasures. Stand in awe at the newly expanded, world-class Beaverbrook Art Gallery, and visit over 25 galleries and artisan shops. Discover Fredericton’s past in the Historic Garrison District and enjoy free activities all summer including outdoor concerts, movies under the stars and the Changing of the Guard Ceremony — you may even be invited to inspect the guard!

New this year, be sure to check out the Garrison Night Market — a Thursday evening market that bustles with local food and craft vendors, an onsite craft beer and cider tasting room, buskers and musical entertainment! And don’t forget our Saturday morning staple, the Fredericton Boyce Farmers Market, named one of the ten best markets in Canada.

Tap your toes at the Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival! 6 days, 150 performances, 400 artists all in 3 city blocks. Just one of 100 plus yearly festivals and events!

So, when are you coming? We guarantee you will be entertained (and inspired!) this summer with cool festivals, music, theatre, markets, craft breweries, history and so much more!
