Town of Florenceville-Bristol

Be our guest in the French Fry Capital of the World! 

Capture some of the St. John River Valley’s natural beauty. From beginning to end, the river is rich in history and one of the most beautiful to explore – both on the water and off. Enjoy the fresh air as you kayak or canoe, stroll the local boardwalk, walk along our multi-use trails, play at our fabulous parks or relax and enjoy a picnic. 

Explore our rich culture and learn about our agricultural heritage in the region known as the potato belt of New Brunswick. Visit distinctive markets for a taste of local character and delicious aromas. Explore our museums and art gallery, visit our shops and restaurants. Overwhelm your senses and treat yourself to a fabulous culinary adventure. As the French Fry Capital of the world, you certainly don’t want to leave town without sampling some of our tasty french fries! In fact, 1 in 3 fries sold world-wide are a McCain Foods french fry, a company whose roots and world headquarters are right here in Florenceville-Bristol. 

Our four-season community offers plenty to discover, so breathe in, look around, and stay awhile!
