There are certain things I look forward to once September rolls around, aside from crisp air and apples everywhere…

The Harvest Jazz and Blues festival is happening this week in Fredericton. Starting tonight in Downtown Fredericton, vendors will be lined up, music will be turned up and there will be multiple shows to take in.

Huge acts like Bahamas (Wednesday at the Bell Aliant tent), Gord Downie and the Sadies (Friday at the Moose Light Tent), David Myles (Saturday at the Playhouse) and Joel Plaskett (Saturday at the Galixie Stage) will be taking the stage during the  5 day festival. Our favourite local band Tomato/Tomato is participating in the Galaxie rising star contest (Friday afternoon at the Galaxie Tent).

Tickets for some shows have sold out (you snooze, you lose!), but there are still passes left to the entire festival. Tickets are available here.


There may still be an opportunity to volunteer – click the banner above or here for the volunteer form.

See you there!
