Canada Day in Fredericton is sure to be fun for everyone!

Canada Day Fredericton 2019

If you are looking for the best way to celebrate this great country of ours I’ve got your answer! The Fredericton Canada Day Committee recently announced plans for another huge 2 days of festivities to take place in the city’s downtown! Plan to be in Officers’ Square on both Sunday, June 30th and Monday, July 1st!

Canada Day itself (July 1st) will see ten hours of live entertainment programmed and presented absolutely free! As well there will be games and activities for kids, food vendors, and a giant fireworks display to cap off the night. The Canada Day Kick-Off Party (June 30th) will feature four hours of live musical entertainment and again at no cost to those in attendance!

The Kick-Off Party will have the JUNO award winning rock band Wintersleep headline the show along with Moncton rockers, The Motorleague. This evening celebration is geared towards the adults with a licenced area open in the square and with this lineup we can expect a great crowd to be in attendance.

The Canada Day headliners will feature another Juno Award winning rock band The Beaches. This all girl band is described as 100% Rock & Roll and specializes in being the life of the party.  Sharing the stage that night will be Partner, a duo committed to exploring and breaking down the limits of their minds in the name of Rock and the Kendra Gale Band will deliver their driving blues rock sounds. The amazingly talented local band Pretty in Pink, often referred to as That 80s band, are tons of fun and will wrap up the day’s entertainment after the fireworks.

And that isn’t even all of it! More musical acts will be announced in the next week or so. Stay tuned!

As its been done in the past, the afternoon portion of Canada Day will feature family and cultural oriented entertainment along with a wide variety of kids activities accompanied by numerous food vendors throughout Officers Square. Area attractions like the NB Sports Hall of Fame, The Fredericton Regional Museum, and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery will be open with a variety of activities and exhibits for the whole family.

For the second straight year the Westmorland Street Bridge will be the launching point for the fireworks making them easily seen from either side of the river. Using the bridge for the fireworks will require it to be closed for several hours during the evening of July 1st meaning everyone should plan accordingly.
