One of Fredericton’s most beautiful and historic areas, Officers’ Square was named one of the Top 10 Public Spaces in Canada! It was a centre of military activity when Fredericton was garrisoned by the British and Canadian Armies. During July and August, it is the site for outdoor summer concerts, the Changing of the Guard ceremony, daily outdoor theatre, and a variety of festivals and events throughout the year.

My wife and I decided to plan a weekend getaway for New Years in Fredericton. Officers Square was absolutley beautiful, the city did an amazing job, live music, warming huts, cider, beer tent, large fire, and two sets of fireworks, one for the kids and one for the adults. Our weekend was absolutley perfect! Thank you Fredericton!!!

I've been to many events at "Officer's Square", and have always had a good time. As for visiting when nothing is going on, I'm not sure I see the value. Perhaps there is more to it in summer time, but right now there is nothing to see. More signs or placards on the history of the square would be helpful.

You can listen to local music in the evening. Tour the museum and shop local crafts. Or just have a picnic. Winter time skating and with a warm building to enjoy hot chocolate. Enjoy on your own or with your friends, even teens! 😊

Our mistake was not to check dates for the historical events like "changing of the guard" and others. Every event appears to end the last of August. Town had some historical building, but not our cup of tea.

If you ever have the chance to come to Fredericton New Brunswick , a visit to Officers Square is a must. It is right in the centre of the down town area in the Garrison District and there is lots to see and do starting at the museum that forms on side of the old parade square. You can see... More

We usually stop here to sit on the benches when were walking downtown for the day. Good central place to chill after you copped a tims coffee or a convenient snack. Also, since Pokemon go has come out, it's a good spot to drop a lure and chat with other Pokemon's
