Winter Festivals, Warm Spirits
Fredericton, New Brunswick
From the fine art of one of Dali’s paintings to the natural beauty of a scenic winter drive, Fredericton offers the ambience and folklore true to its Acadian roots without sacrificing its cool. Don your boots and mitts and join in.

Feel like a local from the moment you arrive

Strap on a pair of skates and take to Killarney Lake or Mactaquac Provincial Park in between and after group work sessions. Listen to the poetry at a local café, pop into the Beaverbrook Art Gallery and marvel at the permanent exhibit of Salvador Dali's Santiago el Grande or get an impromptu lesson in Acadian history. Take home a piece of pewter art that was crafted in front of your eyes.

Truly Canadian experiences from end to end.

Learn the art of the Sugar Camps. Join colleagues as you make your own maple syrup and then taffy in the snow. Take a sleigh ride along the waterfront with only white as far as eye can see. Or watch for birds out by the scenic Bon Ami Point lighthouse.

Take a road trip, Surprise yourself 

Drive the Acadian Coastal Route and stop for breathtaking photos, small town surprises and authentic Acadian cuisine. Or head of the mountains instead and ski the trails at Sugarloaf Provincial Park. Or pack your rod and take the Miramichi River Route to Salmon nirvana.

Dig deeper into east coast hospitality 

Stick around for Winterfest. Go back in time to the 1800’s with a visit to Kings Landing. Meander the streets of town enjoying the Victorian era architecture. Watch the tide come in at the Bay of Fundy. Warm your spirit and your stomach at the Spirits Festival.
