Here’s the DEAL: FROSTival is for Couples!

Like everything during COVID-times, our schedule of FROSTival fun is subject to change. Be sure to check out the website for up-to-date information and don’t forget your mask and mittens!

FROSTival is the perfect excuse to grab your significant other and take advantage of some fun events followed by a nights’ stay with one of our amazing accommodation partners! 

Warm up With…

The Fredericton Taproom Trail, FROSTival Edition! To make taste testing local craft brews in Fredericton extra fun, we partnered with local breweries to create the Fredericton Taproom Trail, a passport-style map showcasing the variety of brews our crafty capital has to offer. With 11 participating taproom partners in Fredericton, and a chance to win an exclusive #FredTapTrail FROSTival edition, handcrafted mug, what is there not to love?

Breathe in that Fresh Winter air!

Hit the slopes (and deals!) at Crabbe Mountain! Crabbe is offering special half price nights (every Thursday during #FROSTival) as well as $25 lift ticket deals (every Sunday & Wednesday during FROSTival) that will make your wallet happy! Or perhaps you are happier on the ice?

Grab your partner for the FROSTival Date Skate; choose between Grant Harvey Centre on the South side (January 21 & 28), or Willie O Ree Place on the North Side (January 23, 30 & February 6). 

Check out the ice sculptures around town with the Downtown Ice Sculpture Showcase or try your hand at CrokiCurl, a fun sport that combines curling with crokinole! Join Second Nature Outdoors for an evening snowshoe walk under the stars through beautiful Mactaquac Provincial Park. The guides will lead you along the trails by headlamp for a 45-minute walk or snowshoe.

Along the way, you will stop for some songs around the campfire, along with some light snacks and warm drinks.
