“We want to reflect the excitement that exists here. We want to talk about great food, awesome events, kick around old stories that engage us in the place we live and provide visitors with a sense of who we are,” says Seabrook.

Fredericton Tourism today launched its new Town Square Social Hub page and an exciting new contest. The contest aims to create a unique social community appealing to both visitors and local residents alike. The Meet in our Town Square Contest offers new page fans the opportunity to win all-access passes to the city’s best festivals along with gifts certificates to some of the top Fredericton restaurants.

“Our Town Square Social Hub is a place to engage locals in a conversation about all that’s great in Fredericton. It’s where you are going to learn and talk about attractions, events, concerts, shows, gallery openings, great Fredericton festivals and unique stories about our rich heritage. We have created a space that reflects the cultural dynamism emerging in Fredericton. It’s designed to be a pool of local insider conversations that visitors can dive into as they plan their visit,” says David Seabrook, manager of Fredericton Tourism.

The Town Square Social Hub offers numerous contests and special deals for people meeting in the Town Square. Fredericton Tourism is grateful for the participation of the city’s major festivals and downtown restaurants to help launch this new initiative.
