June 26, 2013

MONCTON – Acoustica is Moncton’s outdoor summer concert series! These free concerts, held every Tuesday and Thursday in July and August, offer spectacular talent and beautiful outdoor spaces.

Citizens and visitors alike can experience the region’s vibrant artists, while taking advantage of the summer weather outdoors.
