AREA 506 exists to celebrate everything New Brunswick. It’s the music we make and the music we listen to. It’s the culture that surrounds us and that makes us who we are. It’s the amazing art, craft, goods and services that are created right here at home. Since 2016, AREA 506 has brought all of these things together to create engaging experiences and engaged New Brunswickers.
Yes, we are. You’ll be able to buy tickets and everything!
As always, it’s on the New Brunswick Day long weekend. For 2023, that’s August 4, 5 & 6.
We’ll be popping up beside the Waterfront Container Village. The AREA 506 Festival will take place at Pugsley Terminal, immediately adjacent to the AREA 506 Waterfront Container Village at 85 Water St. and continuing to Pugsley Slip.
We’re putting the final touches on the 2023 lineup, and we’ll be launching it SO SOON. Stay tuned.
Yes, for sure. The site is recently paved and relatively flat to help with getting around, and we’ve done our best to create space for anyone with mobility challenges.
We always do our best to create an event and experience that is comfortable and safe for everyone. Our commitment is to align with Public Health directives and, at this time, no specific COVID-19 operational plan is required. We encourage all attendees to use their best judgement to make themselves and those around them as comfortable as possible.
Nope! This experience is open to anyone, and if you’re under the age of 12, you can even attend for FREE as long as you’re with your grown-up! The only exception is the VIP area — that’s only for those 19+. Everyone receives a wristband at the gate to identify those under the age of 19.
Absolutely, yes. Check out the ‘Contact’ section and fill out the form. We’ll touch base with details.
Well-behaved pets are welcome in the Waterfront Container Village (with a leash) but unfortunately, we need to push back on any furry/fluffy/scaly friends in the licensed, ticketed area. Unless they have their own ticket and ID, maybe?
Lots of places! Our first suggestion is always with our friends at the Delta Saint John, but there are lots of other options – try the hotel tool at Discover Saint John here.
Oh, see now you’re paying attention. We’ll make a limited number of Early Bird weekend passes available, specially priced for early supporters. They’ll go on sale for a limited time/while supplies last as soon as the lineup is announced.
Also no. That’s not even a real thing.
