Mark Your Calendars! Heritage Week and Heritage Fairs 2015

New Brunswick Heritage Week 2015, February 9 – 16:
In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Canadian flag, as well as our Provincial flag,
New Brunswick has adopted the theme of Hope Restored – Spem Reduxit – L’espoir renaît for Heritage Week 2015.

The dates for Heritage Week 2015 in New Brunswick are February 9 -16; which also includes Black History month, National Flag of Canada Day (February 15) and National Heritage Day (February 16).

The goal for Heritage Week is to provide New Brunswickers with opportunities to celebrate their past at local levels. This year, in recognition of our national and provincial flags, all interested community organizations, individuals, schools, museums, libraries, archives, seniors centres, and historic sites, are invited to reflect upon these two important symbols in our collective past. Now is the time to begin planning for Heritage Week 2015!

To assist with these activities, Heritage Week 2015 promotion kits will be available mid-December. Individuals and groups wishing to order a kit may contact Heritage Branch, in the Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture, by telephone, 506-453-2324, or by e-mail,

More information will also be available (very soon) on the Heritage Week 2015 web site.

New Brunswick Heritage Fairs 2015:
As in past years, a Regional Heritage Fair will be taking place within your school district during late April-May.
