Pin required for evening shows

The Extrême Frontière Space at the CMA 2019 will have you believing you’ve travelled to a large urban festival. Every day, from August 16 to 23, downtown Moncton will light up with electric energy thanks to our gigantic range of shows, kiosks, pavilions and street performances. 

During the day, Downing Street, from Main Street to Riverfront Park, will be open to pedestrians only for the occasion, and will be chock-full of kiosks and activities for the entire family. There will also be cultural pavilions, street artists, and food trucks. Then, every night, a big show featuring different artists will be presented on the main stage in Riverfront Park.

Inspired by poets, creators, and the builders of Acadie, the Extrême Frontière Space will showcase more than 50 artists and musicians from here and elsewhere. Festival Acadie Rock, a partner of the CMA 2019, will feature prominently in this festive public space.

Artists featured throughout the week: Sweet Crude, Vishtèn, Alaclair Ensemble, Patrice Michaud, Les Hôtesses d’Hilaire, Hubert Lenoir, Comté de Clare, Cy, Caroline Savoie, Pierre Kwenders, A Tribe Called Red, P’tit Belliveau, Émilie Bilodeau, Edith Butler AND MANY MORE. You will not want to miss this.
