We are replicating the event organized at the last Convention based on the tremendous amount of positive feedback we received from the participants. There will be an extravagant buffet for you to enjoy that will include an assortment of delicious BBQ favourites, a slider bar, a variety of food stations and an ice cream bar. Following dinner, you can dance the night away to lively music by “Papa Roxxy” at The Market Square Atrium from 7:00 pm to midnight (optional).

During the Convention, family members or friends can enjoy the sites of Saint John, Canada’s oldest incorporated city and downtown shopping.
