The Saint John Ex has been celebrated for 128 years. At the end of every summer, Saint John Exhibition Park comes alive with exciting rides, the sights and sounds of the midway. Throughout the five-day event, we’ve got more than enough to keep even the busiest of families busy and entertained.

Come and visit the Saint John Ex, August 29-September 2, 2017
