2014 Heritage Week and Heritage Fairs in New Brunswick
Heritage Week 2014, February 10 – 17:
In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I, as well as the 75th anniversary of the commencement of World War II, New Brunswick has adopted the theme of New Brunswick Remembers (1914-2014) Le Nouveau-Brunswick se souvient for Heritage Week 2014.
The dates for Heritage Week 2014 in New Brunswick are February 11 -17; which also includes Black History month, National Flag of Canada Day (February 15) and National Heritage Day (February 17).
The goal for Heritage Week is to provide New Brunswickers with opportunities to celebrate their past at local levels. This year, in recognition of how the two world conflicts have shaped our identity, and how the sacrifices made by so many New Brunswickers have supported the cause of peace, all interested community organizations, individuals, schools, museums, libraries, archives, seniors centres, and historic sites, are invited to remember this important milestone in our collective past. Now is the time to begin planning for Heritage Week 2014.
To assist with these activities, Heritage Week 2014 promotion kits will be available mid-December. Individuals and groups wishing to order a kit may contact the Heritage Branch, in the Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture, by telephone, 506-453-2324, or by e-mail, email@example.com.
More information will also be available (very soon) on the Heritage Week 2014 web site.
