who we are

Summer Soulsa is a vibrant and dynamic music festival that celebrates the diversity and beauty of Caribbean, Latin, and African cultures through art, music, dance, and cuisine.

It is brought to you by Star Light Entertainment Association Inc., in partnership with the City of Fredericton, the Government of New Brunswick, and the Federal Government of Canada. It takes place during the labor day weekend of each year from Friday to Saturday.


Where would we be without each and every one of our supporters?

We wish to thank all of our past, present, and future sponsors and partners for making this unique festival a highly anticipated event, year after year. We are so proud to share the Afro-Caribbean, Latin and African culture and music with the people of Fredericton and surrounding communities and are only able to do so with your support.
