Overview

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.

Love it there in the summer . Lots of festivals and family events. Even in Winter. Harvest Jazz and Blues events , craft fairs, ice sculptures, free public out door skating. Great place for family and friends to gather. Perfect location downtown Fredericton.

A very unique experience in a Canadian capital. Great to see the marching, the gunfire, and imagine life during colonial times. After the show, you can actually sneak up and take photos as the soldiers stand still. Be respectful though.

It i8s a nice place to go for a summer concert all you need to bring is a lawn chair or blanket. Some lawn chairs are provided by the city of Fredericton for visitors. There is also a museum that one can visit.

Officer's Square is open to the public all the time. As for the museum, I do not know but you could check with the City of Fredericton on-line. Good luck and I hope you enjoy your visit!
