Changing of the Guard Ceremony

With a flash of scarlet and a skirl of pipes, history comes to life!

The Canadian Army was born in 1883, with the establishment of the Infantry School Corps, Company “A” in Fredericton.

Watch as period-dressed guards re-enact a ceremony to the beat of a piper and drummer. Maybe you will be selected to “inspect” the guard!

Ceremonies take place during July and August in Officers’ Square daily at 11am & 4pm, with additional ceremonies on Tuesday and Thursday at 7pm (Weather Permitting).

Sentry duty changes on the hour at City Hall from 12 – 3pm daily.
