Loyalist Day Commemorations - May 18th


The New Brunswick Branch of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada invites you to our annual celebration and commemoration of our Loyalist founding fathers and mothers.

The public is invited to celebrate the arrival of the Loyalists in Saint John Harbour on May 18th, 1783 and the incorporation of their new city on the same day in 1785.

This year's ceremony will be hosted at the Market Square Atrium, and begins at 10:00 AM with a concert by St. Mary's Band. Notable dignitaries and politicians will be present for the ceremony, including the Lieutenant Governor of New Brunswick, The Honorable Jocelyne Roy Vienneau and the Mayor of Saint John, Mel Norton. Members of the United Empire Loyalist Association of Canada will be present in period dress and the City of Saint John's birthday cake will be cut and served following the ceremony.

At 12:00 Noon, the 3rd Field Artillery Regiment (The Loyal Company) will be on Pugsley Wharf to fire a 21-gun salute, a long-time tradition in the Loyalist City. Saint John is the only non-capital city in Canada which can have such a salute in the absence of royalty, a privilege granted to us in commemoration of Loyalists' important role in the history of our city, province, and country.

In the afternoon, both Loyalist House and the New Brunswick Museum will be open free of admission.

The Loyalist Association's annual banquet will be held in the evening at the Union Club, 125 Germain Street. The guest speaker will be Robert Pichette, who designed the New Brunswick Flag. He is Dauphin Herald Extraordinary and will give a presentation on "Royal Heraldry in New Brunswick" with illustrations that range from the small Arms of King Louis XV on an Acadian mission to a chalice of Queen Victoria. The dinner, which will be open to the public, will be of Maple Glazed Salmon, etc. Tickets are $40.00 each. The evening will begin with cocktails at 6:30 PM followed by dinner at 7:00.

For more information on this year's commemoration, phone 632-3485. For tickets to the banquet, please phone 832-5334.
