Changing of the Guard Ceremony & Posting of the Sentries

With a flash of scarlet and a skirl of pipes, history comes to life! The Canadian Army was born in 1883, with the establishment of the Infantry School Corps, Company “A” in Fredericton.

Watch as period-dressed guards re-enact a ceremony to the beat of a piper and drummer.

Maybe you will be selected to “inspect” the guard!

Ceremonies take place at the NB Legislature, July & August, daily at 11am & 4pm, with additional ceremonies on Tuesday and Thursday at 7pm (Weather Permitting).

Sentry duty changes on the hour at City Hall and various downtown locations from 12 – 3pm daily during July & August.
