Culture & Goods

2:00pm to 12:00am Saturday and Sunday

The festival aims to shine a light on the many different cultural groups, cities, towns, and villages within New Brunswick. We’ve developed our Container Village to be a space where cultural groups, vendors, artists and brands from across the province showcase what they’re about and engage with festival-goers in a new way.

This year, the Container Village is open 2:00 pm – 12:00 am on Saturday, August 5th and Sunday, August 6th – so drop by and wander the groups, sample the goods, and experience New Brunswick in small way.

Vendors will be provided a shipping container to showcase and sell their goods in the Vendor Section of the Village.

Culture groups and artists will be provided a shipping container in the Culture/Artists area of the Shipping Container Village to provide an experience for festival-goers at the Festival. Some of these groups will also perform on the Canada 150 Culture Stage.

Here are some of the groups you can expect to see in the Container Village this year:
