Description: One of Fredericton’s most beautiful and historic areas, Officers’ Square...
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.

Many events are held here during the Spring, Summer and Fall months. Often times, tents can be seen being set up or taken down. Family evenings can... More

Trust me, you need to visit here in July! You can watch the changing of honour guard and enjoy the fireworks and performances in Canada Day. Many events every summer. The sculpture of Lord Beaverbrook, the creator of New Brunswick tell you that yes, this is the Square!

We had a 4.5 hour layover in Fredericton on a flight back from Halifax to Toronto. After a short (15-18 minutes taxi ride) downtown, we had a fair bit of time to poke around. When I checked out a few things at the Tourist Information Booth in the city hall, I was told that if I got to Officers' Square... More

Lovely old heritage area in downtown Fredericton where they have a changing of the guard in the summer, concerts throughout the summer season and is also the site of the Fredericton Region Museum which has a very interesting introductory video on the history of the Fredericton area and contains many historical artifacts, including the preserved 40 pound Coleman Frog. Pleasant... More

Excellent performance. Highly recommend a stop to see the free show when your in Fredericton. The show is better on Thursday or Tuesday evening with more troops. It can be loud with the cannon, musket fire, bagpipes and drums. Photo opportunity at the end of the show with troops.

Officer's square is a great place to throw a frisbee or have a picnic with some local food. The museum located at officer's square is a great place to learn some local history and in the winter it's a great place for outdoor skating. During the summer there is also changing of the guards and can be quite the entertainment.... More
