Loyalist DayBack to Calendar
The NB Branch of the United Empire Loyalists’ Association of Canada is pleased to invite you to attend a short Loyalist Day event on Saturday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m. in Market Square Atrium. The celebration will feature St. Mary’s Band, re-enacting members of DeLancey’s Brigade, members of the United Empire Loyalists’ Association (NB Branch) in period dress, and the Town Crier’s Loyalist Day proclamation. This year commemorates the 236th anniversary of the Loyalist Landings. The Mayor, New Brunswick and Federal politicians, and local dignitaries will offer remarks and the Mayor will cut Saint John’s birthday cake for all those in attendance. At noon, the 3rd Field Artillery Unit will also fire a 21-gun salute from the waterfront near the Marco Polo Cruise Terminal in honour of the day.
