Download the Parks & Trails Day Planning Kit for everything you need to know about planning your very own Parks & trails Day event! It has fantastic information on making your event accessible for all, keeping your outdoor event smoke-free, and ideas for activities.

The New Brunswick Anti-Tobacco Coalition would like to remind all event organizers that according to the New Brunswick Smoke-Free Places Act, smoking as well as using e-cigarettes and water pipes are prohibited on all trails, beaches, playgrounds and sports fields (including the spectators stand), as well as in parks and other public spaces.

Outdoor events provide a wonderful opportunity for community activity and engagement. Most New Brunswickers don’t want to breathe in second-hand tobacco smoke. Creating a smoke-free outdoor event protects people, especially children, from exposure to dangerous tobacco smoke. The New Brunswick Anti-Tobacco Coalition’s Making my Outdoor Event Smoke-Free Guide provides tips and tools to help you promote your event as smoke-free, including sample signage and promotional materials.
