Fredericton's new Performing Arts Centre will be a vibrant community space where everyone will be welcome. With construction set to begin this fall, this state-of-the-art building will be a prominent anchor of our downtown thanks to its prime location at the corner of Regent St and King St. This modern building will open a world of exciting possibilities for all to enjoy, from large touring performances of today’s global artists, to ballet and Broadway, to music of every genre, to local arts groups who will be able to perform in the smaller studio at an affordable rate.

Hundreds of people were included in the design process: Artists, business people, cultural workers, local experts in building design and planning, and local indigenous elders shared their opinions and provided direction on the design. The final design reflects public feedback received during public engagement activities in March. More than 4000 people came to Engage Fredericton to learn about the project, and hundreds took the design survey and attended in-person open houses to share their thoughts on the design of this exciting project.
