Fredericton is our provincial capital city, but it’s the rivers – the mighty Saint John and the adjacent Nashwaak – that surely imprints the distinctive character, with brilliant fall colours framing the banks this time of year. Combine the scenery with the city’s distinct historical character and Maritime-style urban experiences like the Fredericton Taproom Trail and the many great restaurants featuring harvest menus. In Fredericton, you’ve got the perfect mix of fall enjoyment.

Frederictonians live on nature’s doorstep so fall is an extra special time of year. There are waterfalls, over 120 km of trails, including the iconic Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge spanning the river, three of the province’s top golf courses, as well as Wabanaki Tree Spirit Tours in the city’s Odell Park

For even more art check out our weekly markets which feature plenty of homemade wares – cultural, culinary, and beyond!
