what we do
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
To ensure that all who use Harbour Station want to return - by providing outstanding value and exceeding their expectations.
Harbour Station located in downtown Saint John is New Brunswick's centerpiece for sporting and entertainment events. With 250,000 patrons within a two-hour radius and 43 million within a one-day drive Harbour Station is able to attract a diversity of world-class entertainment and sporting events. Since opening in 1993, the facility has derived immense satisfaction from providing great entertainment to all its patrons. Performers and patrons alike can be assured of a first-class and memorable experience at The Entertainment Centre of Atlantic Canada.
Harbour Station was constructed so it would have the flexibility to host a wide variety of events in a multitude of configurations. With 6,200 permanent seats and additional portable seating bringing the total to 7,800, the facility is sized to accommodate the requirements of countless performers. Removable seats and hockey dasher boards enable the arena to be transformed into the largest unobstructed show floor in Atlantic Canada. The technical capabilities are second to none in Eastern Canada and have accommodated exceptionally all the events that have been staged to date.
In its 16 years of existence, Harbour Station has attracted an impressive line-up of performers, including Aerosmith, Brad Paisley, Garth Brooks, Celine Dion, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw and Elton John. It has also hosted National Basketball and NHL games and numerous world-class events such as the Ford World Curling Championships, the World Junior Figure Skating Championships and 18 Cirque du Soleil performances (Saltimbanco and Alegria).
One of Harbour Station’s greatest assets is its connection by indoor walkways to many amenities in the uptown core. The “Inside Connection” links the facility to hotels, shopping centres, restaurants, bars and indoor parking all within walking distance.
Harbour Station is the facility where people want to socialize and be entertained. The building can be changed quickly and dramatically to accommodate the particular needs of each individual event. Conversions from hockey to trade show to concert to circus are part of the unique functionality of the facility. But once the Building is set, our obligation does not stop, staff works diligently to ensure that all patrons enjoy their visit to Harbour Station.
