Harvest Music Festival 2023

Discover Fredericton's musical heart

Step out of the studio and into the Harvest Music Festival! Annually in mid-September, Harvest fills the streets and courtyard around our college as Fredericton comes alive with music, culture, street performances, artisans, and food trucks. There’s no better way to kickoff the school year.
