Planning your Fredericton vacation in Atlantic Canada’s riverfront city is made easy with so many opportunities to experience culture, history, entertainment and attractions.

Our vibrant culture is on display at world class art galleries and in heritage museums. Historic districts showcase Fredericton theatre, concerts and architecture. Inspect the guard in the Historic Garrison District or explore the majestic St. John River by canoe or kayak. Make your way along 85kms of riverfront trails on a bike rented from the Lighthouse on the Green. A Saturday morning visit to the Boyce Farmers’ Market is one of the most popular things to do in Fredericton where visitors can mingle with the locals at one of Canada’s finest traditional farm markets.

Play a round of Fredericton golf on the world-class championship course at Kingswood or enjoy a day at a local spa, then play hard at night with live Fredericton entertainment in the Tannery Entertainment District. There's lots of fun for families too, including cool hands-on experiences at Science East New Brunswick's only Science Centre or a day at the beach at Killarney Lake or Mactaquac Provincial Park.

View a number of Fredericton vacation audio walking tours produced by Fredericton Heritage Trust.

Be active or slow down and relax...the choice is yours.


Kings Landing Historical Settlement

Nestled in a majestic setting in the St.
John River valley, Kings Landing Historical Settlement depicts the one hundred year transformation of a young colony into a vibrant nation. Listen for creaking wagons pulled by trotting work horses, the whooshing of hoop skirts, and the distant melodies from lively fiddlers and dancing townsfolk. Witness the bustle of farm life, and learn first hand how ordinary people lived and worked in the 19th century. An epic story that’s more than just history, it’s history, well told.

Changing of the Guard


With a flash of scarlet and a skirl of pipes, history comes to life! The Canadian Army was born in 1884 with the establishment of the Infantry School Corps, Company 'A' in Fredericton. Watch as period-dressed guard re-enact a drill ceremony to the beat of a piper and drummer. Maybe you will be selected to 'inspect' the guard!

Ceremonies take place at Officers' Square in July & August:
7 days a week at 11am & 4pm (with a third ceremony on Tuesday & Thursday at 7pm)
Sentry duty changes on the hour at City Hall. Local dignitaries inspect most Thursday morning ceremonies. For more information call 506-460-2041.
