The fourth edition of the Bordertown Festival will be held May 2 to 6 in Sackville New Brunswick. Bordertown is a sample of Sackville’s many festivals, art galleries, local businesses, and restaurants. The Festival is, “about crossing the lines that categorize our community, working together, and celebrating all that this small town has to offer”.

This year’s edition features events in music, fine arts, and theatre and also has many activities for children and families. It includes a mix of some of Sackville’smost popular local performers with performers with a regional and national profile. “We’re very

“We loved making it a night in Sackville last year for Bordertown Fest. Had supper, heard Lenny Gallant, stayed at a BB then took in the farmers market and quilt show. And we just live in Riverview NB.”   Neil McTiernan, Bordertown III (2017) attendee
