Shediac

Trip Planner Canada  /  New Brunswick  /  Shediac
Shediac is a Canadian town in Westmorland County, New Brunswick. The town is known as the "Lobster Capital of the World" and hosts an annual festival every July which promotes its ties to lobster fishing. At the western entrance to the town is a 90-tonne sculpture called The World's Largest Lobster.GeographyShediac is situated primarily on Route 133 around Shediac Bay, a sub-basin of the Northumberland Strait.The town is located southwest and adjacent to the community of Pointe-du-Chêne which features Parlee Beach Provincial Park as well as the Pointe-du-Chêne wharf which was once the eastern terminus of the European and North American Railway as well as a stopover after 1939 for Pan-Am's trans-Atlantic "clipper" air service that featured large seaplanes. Imperial Airways flying boat service to Foynes, Ireland also used the facilities.HistoryHundreds of years ago, the Mi'kmaq encampment of "Es-ed-ei-ik" was one of the major camps in southeast New Brunswick. The Mi'kmaq word "Es-ed-ei-ik" which means "running far in" (in reference to the tide, which has a long range over the shallow, sandy beaches) eventually transformed into Gédaique.
