New Brunswick’s Heritage Fair Program is part of a national education project developed to increase awareness and interest in Canadian history. In New Brunswick, the program is an initiative of the Heritage Branch in the Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture.
Heritage Fairs are an opportunity to include your entire school in an educational, dynamic and exciting event! By participating in the program, teachers from all departments (social studies, history, language arts, core language and immersion, science and technology, math, sports and recreation, multi-media, art, music, enrichment etc.) encourage their students to learn more about their community while developing and expressing their creative talents. By putting together an interdisciplinary program in your school, your students will be proud to participate in your school’s own unique Heritage Fair.
The most insightful and creative projects have a chance to win the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame’s Sport Legacy Award, awarded annually to the best New Brunswick sports themed Heritage Fair project in each region.
