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.

Not as good as the Ottawa Changing of the Guard, but neat to see. Be warned, they shoot off the riffles and if you little one isn't expecting it, it's rather loud.

I heard the City of Fredericton is going to make this better, but at this point, it is basically a big empty square of grass. The changing of the guard is something to see - try to catch that in the summer months.

We have attended many events at Officer Square. It is a beautiful location and easily accessible. Officer Square hosts alot of local events as well as local artists. Check out the City of Fredericton fb page or website for details on upcoming events.

We love the free concerts at Officers' Square which are usually held two nights a week during summer months. Over the years they have upgraded the square by building public washrooms and a larger stage. There is a bit of controversy going on at the...More

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.

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!
