Visit a market! Weekends in Fredericton mean visiting one of our great markets! International cuisine, local produce, snacks to go, handmade items & so much more! Check out Fredericton Boyce Farmers Market (665 George Street), Northside Market (311 St. Mary’s Street) and the Cultural Market (28 Saunders Street).

Get out on our fantastic trail system, much of which follows the lovely Saint John River! Fredericton is very proud of its trails, and no wonder, with over 115 km of trail system, it’s perfect for walking, running, and cycling!

Take a self-guided walking tour of Fredericton.  Fredericton is a very walk-able city.  Visit our Visitor Information Centre, 397 Queen Street (open Monday-Friday, 10am-4:30pm) to pick up our 2019 Visitor Guides and attraction map.  Pressed for time? Our blog gives you some great ideas of places you can visit that is a stone’s throw away in the downtown area.

Learn a bit of history – the last 200 years to be exact! Step inside Fredericton’s City Hall and take advantage of a Tapestry Tour.  Council Chambers has 27 hand-woven tapestries that tell the story of Fredericton’s history over the last 200 years.
