Paddlefest is a music and outdoor recreation festival held St. Andrews, New Brunswick every May. It combines music, art and outdoor activities for a full weekend of events for music lovers and adventure seekers alike!
During the day, canoeing, kayaking, cycling, and hiking activities are found around the town and surrounding areas. In the evening, the town transforms into a unique musical landscape, with live music happening at many restaurants, cafes and venues along the front street and the Main Stage centrally located in the town square.
Paddlefest started as a small community event that over 2 decades has grown into a multifaceted festival that attracts hundreds of people from around the region. Every year the festival continues to expand while still maintaining the grassroots work ethic and community-driven spirit that it started with.
