Nashwaak MusicFest: August 4-6

Nashwaak Musicfest delivering diverse entertainment, camping, family fun & more!

Nashwaak Musicfest will take place on the banks of the Nashwaak River August 4-6! This year’s NB Day long weekend festival offers live music, comedy, magic tricks, live theatre and onsite camping! There is certainly something to appeal to each and every one.  

This topnotch entertainment is offered at a very affordable price in a beautiful location just a short 30 minute drive from Fredericton! The event lends itself well as a gathering place for friends & family to spend a weekend together and the community of Nashwaak Bridge welcomes all visitors from far and wide. The festival may be smaller in size but it has a big heart!

New this year, the Calithumpians will be kicking off the festival with their show celebrating Canada's 150th birthday on the Friday night.
