Area 506 Festival

August 02 - August 04


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

Kick things off Friday night this year! Then, Saturday and Sunday, visit a unique shipping container village on the city’s long wharf, showcasing New Brunswick music, culture and goods; 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.

And in what’s likely to be one of the most exhilarating parts of the weekend, another fantastic line-up of music for the Main Stage on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights! Headliners include: 

Friday - Joel Plaskett Emergency | Saturday - Interpol | Sunday - City and Colour
