Before you leave home
You are headed to Sussex, in south central New Brunswick, Canada. We are in the centre of the triangle between the cities of Moncton, Saint John and the New Brunswick capital of Fredericton, and roughly an hour's drive away from each.
From the west, take the TransCanada Highway to Youngs Cove and Exit 365 before following Route 10 to Sussex.
From the east, you have two solid options. Either follow the TransCanada Highway to Youngs Cove and Exit 365 and on to Route 10, or you can follow Route 1, and take either Exit 198 (Sussex Corner) or 195 (Four Corners -- look for the red Frenchy's building or the big black and white cows) into town.
From Maine, US, cross into Canada at St. Stephen/Calais before following Highway 1 (MacKay Highway) two hours to Sussex at Exit 192.
You may also wish to cross at Houlton, Me./Woodstock, NB and travel east on the TransCanada for approx. 2 hours. Then turn on to Hwy. 10 at Exit 365 for a further half hour.
Check road conditions in New Brunswick by calling 5-1-1 and entering the route number.
If you are hoping to make a week of it, the Sussex area has a variety of accommodation options, with motels and campgrounds just minutes from the fair venue.
