Visiting Edmundston

Welcome to the beautiful Appalachians Mountains in the northwestern part of New Brunswick, Canada’s only officially bilingual province!

EdmundstonIf you are coming from out of town to have your QHHT® session, you may want to take in some of the cool things to see and do, and plan a small getaway.

Edmundston is located across the Saint John River from Aroostook County in the State of Maine and close to the Temiscouata region of the province of Quebec. I was born and raised here, the current population is 16,500.

The area boasts several tourist attractions, many outdoor activities as well as cultural and sporting events: Salon du livre (book fair) in April, the Jazz & Blues Festival at the end of June, La Foire Brayonne at the beginning of August, a fall festival at the New Brunswick Botanical Gardens in October and a popular music festival in November. The Blizzard, 2018 Maritime Junior Hockey League (MHL) Champions, attract thousands of local and regional fans at the new Centre Jean-Daigle.

If you love winter activities, the Mont-Farlagne is a great place to spend the day or the whole weekend!
