This free event is presented in partnership with Shivering Songs Festival and St. Thomas University.


About Songs of the City

Songs of the City is an incredibly special event, one like none other in Fredericton. With emotional and inspirational stories paired with breathtaking music and song, it’s an evening difficult to forget. These stories are just a sampling of the courage, strength and resilience that can be found in our community. Every person in our community has a story, and thanks to your support and donations we can continue to help individuals have a hot meal, a friend, or support during a tough time. None of these people would be here today without the support they received during their darkest hours. None of these people would be here without you.
