A celebration will be held to honour the 200th anniversary of the arrival of 180 Welsh settlers and the establishment of the Cardigan settlement, located 25 km outside of Fredericton. 

Cardigan is the oldest enduring Welsh community in Canada.  The Welsh Chapel and cemetery is a designated historic site.

Activities will be held at the Welsh Chapel, beginning at 1:00 p.m.  There will be opportunities to explore genealogy, to learn a little of the Welsh language and to make Welsh cakes, along with music, crafts and refreshments. 

On Sunday, August 10th a special church service will be held at 10:30 at the Brunswick Street Baptist Church, the first church with which most of the early settlers were affiliated. 

Everyone is welcome to join us, admission is free.  Bring a lawn chair so you can sit and chat with other visitors!
