On Friday and Saturday, July 28 & 29, 2023 the team at AREA 506 rolled in something new!
The inaugural Boxcar Country Music Festival took place on the Saint John waterfront, and featured an exciting lineup of top Canadian country music artists — Dean Brody, James Barker Band, The Road Hammers, Madeline Merlo, Hunter Brothers to name a few — supported by New Brunswick fan favourites and homegrown talent.
In addition to the ticketed evening shows, visitors enjoyed a weekend of free, family-friendly programming in the Waterfront Container Village — everything from country karaōke to lasso skills and line-dancing workshops.
We had a lot of fun, so we’ve decided to do it again! Mark your calendars for the weekend of July 27, 2024 and we’ll meet you on the waterfront!
