Nashwaak Musicfest: July 29 - 31

Nashwaak Musicfest is taking place on the banks of the Nashwaak River July 29-31! The organizers of the festival are delivering music, comedy and even a magician in this year’s line-up! There is certainly something to appeal to each and every patron. 

By definition, “New Brunswick Day is a chance for people to strengthen their local communities by celebrating their achievements, history, culture and landscape.” Keeping that in mind, there is no better event to celebrate our great province! It would be hard to beat this topnotch entertainment at such an affordable price in a more beautiful location! The event lends itself well as a gathering place for friends & family to spend a weekend together as festival goers can camp onsite. The community of Nashwaak Bridge comes alive as the local residents join together to welcome visitors from far and wide. It is a smaller festival with a huge vibe!

A highlight for this year’s event includes a few surprises aimed at making everything even more convenient for attendees. The fact that early bird ticket sales have doubled this year is a sure indication of the success of past years!

The music line-up spans the genres of roots-folk, country, rock, bluegrass, singer-songwriter, rockabilly and more. Check out the schedule below and visit their website for even more info –
