Thrush Hermit Reunion Tour

When: Wednesday, September 25. 7:30 pm.

Where: The Playhouse

Two decades after they disbanded, Joel Plaskett, Rob Benvie, Cliff Gibb and Ian McGettigan have reunited for a limited tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their critically acclaimed final album Clayton Park—one of the best albums to come out of Canada in the 90s. Although the Halifax-based alt-rock quartet only released two albums, their brief run left an indelible mark on the Canadian music scene while building a lasting reputation for their frantic and unhinged live performances.

Tickets are on sale now through The Playhouse box office and cost $34 each.

Etsy New Brunswick Pop-up Market

When: Saturday, September 28. 10 am - 4 pm.

Where: Currie Center

Love shopping for locally crafted, handmade artisan products? You will want to mark your calendar as Etsy New Brunswick is set to showcase the wealth of talented craftspeople and artisan retailers in the province. The market is part of the nationwide Etsy Made In Canada event where pop-up markets will appear in 30 cities from coast to coast. 

UNB Homecoming Game 2019

When: Saturday, September 28. 1 pm.

Where: BMO Field

Homecoming weekend is not only the biggest annual alumni event on the calendar, but a chance for current students to connect with the university’s long and storied history. The highlight of the weekend tends to be the Homecoming Classic football game between the UNB Fredericton Red Bombers and the UNB Saint John Seawolves where alumni and students alike adorn themselves in red and black and show off their school spirit while cheering on the home team. Entry is free for UNB students upon the presentation of your UCard and there will be beer and other concessions available for purchase.

Cst. Robb Costello Memorial Fun Walk/Run + Oktoberfest

When: Saturday, October 5. 12 pm.

Where: Picaroons Brewing Company

Just over a year after the tragic mass shooting on Fredericton’s Northside, a fun walk/run will be held in memory of Constable Robb Costello, one of four victims killed that day. Proceeds from the event will go to the Cst. Robb Costello Memorial Fund which aims to provide scholarships within the community, police training and support first-responder families in crisis. There are several ways you can participate in the event, whether you want to run or walk in the race or simply sit at Picaroons and enjoy beer, food, games and seasonal music. For more details and ticket information, check out the event page on Facebook or Eventbrite.
