April Wine to headline Atlantic Nationals Downtown Street Party

MONCTON – Canadian legends April Wine are coming to Moncton as part of the Atlantic Nationals Automotive Extravaganza. The band will headline the event’s Friday night Rock ‘n Roll Street Party on Friday, July 10.

“The Atlantic Nationals Automotive Extravaganza is a key event in Moncton’s bustling summer calendar,” said Mayor George LeBlanc. “The addition of April Wine to the Main Street party will only add to the excitement of the weekend.”

The Main Street will also welcome quality local talent, and things kick off at 6pm. Main Street will be closed for the All-Day Cruise-In as of 8am. 

“We are so pleased to be welcoming Canadian rockers April Wine to our event,” said Show Chairman Bill Doherty. “Year after year we shut down Main Street and welcome tons of great car enthusiasts from around the world. To have a world-class entertainer like April Wine as our headliner is the icing on the cake!”

In addition to the Friday night programming, the Atlantic Nationals Automotive Extravaganza will extend throughout the weekend  at Moncton’s Centennial Park. For full event details, visit atlanticnationals.com.
