Explore the downtown - & maybe see something that you never noticed before!

Architectural Scavenger HuntJanuary 18, 2018, 12:01pmDowntownFredericton Heritage Trust encourages you to explore our built heritage in a different way through our FROSTival event Architectural Scavenger Hunt! This event will be FREE and open for the entire duration of FROSTival (January 18 - February 4)

Stroll through downtown Fredericton and look up, down and all around at the architectural details that so richly contribute to the defining character of our city. Fredericton's early architects, designers and developers had a keen eye for subtle nuances that make so many of our buildings unique, valuable and worth preserving.

Have fun identifying each building then turn your entry form in to the Fredericton Heritage Trust via email info@heritagefredericton.org or PO Box 546 Fredericton, New Brunswick E3B 5A6.

All completed entries will be eligible for a drawing for several different prizes. Turn in your entry by February 4, 2018.

Winners will be notified by Rachael or Jason, from Fredericton Heritage Trust.
