Container Village

We’re taking something that you’ve known and loved – the AREA 506 Vendor Village – and turning it into another amazing experience on the Saint John Waterfront for residents, tourists, and cruise ship passengers to enjoy from late Spring to mid-Fall each year.

In June, we’ll be opening the full waterfront experience with a diverse collection of retail shops, a performance space, a waterfront container bar, food trucks, public art and pop-up activities. All wrapped up in more than 60 shipping containers, celebrating everything that’s cool about our identity as a Port City.
