Owner description: 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.

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 moment because the City would like to give the Square an 8.9 million dollar upgrade, but even without this, it is a great place to visit and view the changing of the guard, listen to music and feel the breeze off the Saint John River.

From ice skating to concert and movie under the sky!
This is one of the central places of Fredericton.
Very busy during Harvest Jazz and Blurs festival.

we were very happy to go and walk for the Veterans, the last time I really was at the Officer Square, it look just OK, when we arrived I was flabbergast how in disrepair this park was, I know it is supposed to be refurbished and be more like a park, but what an eyesore for travellers going thru this beautiful city.
