    Let Us Entertain You!

    Situated along the world-famous salmon fishing river, the city of Miramichi offers cultural experiences that allow you to discover the heritage of the region and its people. If you’ve ever tangled with the mighty Atlantic salmon, you know the fish tales are true. The ghost stories, lumberjack legends and other local folklore we leave to your imagination. The art of storytelling is ingrained in the roots of Miramichi, just like the tradition of musical kitchen parties. The city is also known for its variety of popular festivals like Canada’s Irish Festival on the Miramichi and the Miramichi Folksong Festival. Experience a traditional powwow in one of the neighbouring First Nations communities and be prepared to be captivated by the genuine hospitality.

    Get a real feel for the shipbuilding roots of the mighty Miramichi River at Ritchie Wharf Park where you can enjoy the boardwalk, entertainment, restaurants, artists’ galleries and boat charters on site. Children will enjoy the adventure playground and splash pad. Then visit Boishébert and Beaubears Island Shipbuilding National Historic Site of Canada with costumed guides to learn about the Acadians who took refuge there and the shipbuilding of centuries past. On Middle Island you will hear the story of Irish immigrants and the hardships they endured.

    Learn about salmon conservation at Canada’s oldest fish hatchery. Visit French Fort Cove Nature Park but don’t be afraid of spooks on the Headless Nun Tour.

  • Discover Miramichi

    The Miramichi region is known for its salmon fishing.  Outfitters located along the river offer a variety of packages for the ultimate fishing vacation.  Cast your line for a day or a week alongside experienced guides.

    The area is rich in cultural experiences that allow you to discover the heritage of its people.  Travel back through time on a boat tour to Beaubears Island. Costumed guides tell the tales of the Acadians that took refuge at Wilson’s Point and of the shipbuilding that took place on the island. 

    At Metepenagiag Heritage Park in Red Bank, experience the ancient Mi’kmaq culture and view archaeological finds dating back over 3000 years.  Walk along the trails and gather fresh ingredients for tea.  Enjoy a traditional meal including bread baked in the sand.  Travel to Bartibog Bridge and take a horse and carriage ride to tour the grounds of MacDonald Farm.  Costumed interpreters perform the daily chores of this 19th century Scottish settler’s homestead.   The centuries old legend of the Headless Nun comes to life along the trails of French Fort Cove.  Only the brave should dare the dark to hear the harrowing tale of the nun and the buried treasure she is said to protect.

    There’s no better way to experience all that’s Miramichi than by spending a day on the river.  Miramichi River Boat Tours offer daily 90 minute sailings aboard the double-decker Max Aitken.  The colorful Acadian captain, Azade Haché, shares stories of the past as you enjoy the view.  For a fun and relaxing family activity rent a tube and float along the river.   For the beach lovers, travel to Escuminac to soak in the sun, sand and water along Miramichi Bay. 

    A great way to meet lots of friendly folk is at one of our many festivals.  Canada’s Irish Festival in mid July and the long standing Miramichi Folksong Festival in early August are two popular summer events.  There’s the Napan Agricultural Show, Miramichi Rotary Dragon Boat Festival, Powwows, and the Lumbermen’s Competition. Check out the full schedule.

    Relive your childhood by sleeping in a treehouse.   Stay overnight in a hotel room overlooking the river, at a quaint bed and breakfast or a campground.  It’s easy to book your accommodations through our online booking engine.

    Salmon, lobster and other fresh seafood are on the menu at many of our restaurants.  From full service dining rooms to intimate cafés or on a patio, there’s a choice to satisfy every palate.
