Get ready to celebrate the best of New Brunswick as Saint John’s Waterfront is pleased to host the Area 506 Festival!

Showcasing New Brunswick music, culture and goods in a unique shipping container village on the city’s long wharf; it’s about celebrating and shining a light on the entire province. Visit the Road of Restaurants; an area for festival-goers to grab a bite from a local food stand and relax, as well as a beer garden featuring locally-made beer, wine and cider.

Plan to check out the FREE Canada 150 Stage between 2:00pm and 8:00pm daily, featuring some of the best acts in the NB Music Scene and a number of amazing cultural acts. Performers include:

The Hypochondriacs  •  David in the Dark  •  Penny Blacks  •  Apyll Aileen  •   Tampa

Mike Biggar  •  Eloie Richard  •  Eastcoast Love Story  •  Jane Blanchard  •  The Honeyboys


And in what’s likely to be one of the most exhilarating parts of the weekend, the group is curating another fantastic line-up of music for the Main Stage on Saturday and Sunday.
