Spotlight on Fredericton

Welcome to Fredericton

The city of Fredericton combines the best of small-town charm and vibrant, urban energy. The capital of New Brunswick, it offers something for everyone, whether you’re a history buff, here for business, or just looking to have some fun at the many shops, restaurants and pubs, festivals and attractions. Relax and unwind as you wander through our downtown area, as you visit an art studio, gallery, or our science centre.

Outside the city, there’s even more to see. Venture into the beautiful natural landscape that surrounds our city, as you kayak on pristine waters, hike one of many trails, or simply take the family out for a beautiful picnic. Visit the award-winning Kings Landing Historical Settlement in nearby Mactaquac County, or take a peek at the many hand-made creations in the Village of Gagetown. Or wade through beautiful waters as you fish for salmon on the world-famous Miramichi River.
