Nothing Says East of Ordinary more than a Great Seafood Festival!

Nectar Restaurant, Bathurst, New Brunswick Canada

A trip to New Brunswick will be sure to find you celebrating the start of summer with at least one of our incredible food festivals and culinary events. 

Prepare to get your summer well underway with one of these festivals, celebrating our fine food and spirits. 

The Flavours New Brunswick Food Festival on May 24 is a celebration of creations using the unique products available from land to sea in New Brunswick. Chefs, producers and hospitality students are coming together to showcase what New Brunswick has to offer. Sample chicken bone martinis, salmon nachos and wild blueberry latte dessert!  

June 6-8, the Seafood Festival in St. Andrews will focus on local producers, including tours of salmon farms and the biggest lobster boil, clam bake, salmon barbecue and seafood feast imaginable! 

From May 31 to June 7, the beautiful town of Caraquet, on New Brunswick’s Acadian coast, will feature the savours of wine, gourmet foods and the charm and hospitality of the Acadian Peninsula at FestiVin. Tastings, seminars and a gala evening make this event a must do for sommeliers in training. 

If you’re more of a microbrewery fan and you’re anxious to taste the beers of the region, you’re in luck. With one stop at the Atlantic Beer Festival in Moncton on May 31, you’ll get a sampling of our many microbreweries. 

No question, experiencing the fine foods that are unique to a region is a priority for every traveler. Enjoy local flavours, gourmet creations and fabulous foods at some of New Brunswick’s food festivals and culinary events.
