Meet & Greet Program

A Hometown Welcome Every Time

A Hometown Welcome Every Time

Saint John has an award-winning meet and greet program, dating back to 1989 for the first visit of a cruise ship to the Port. The meet and greet program continues to this day, with a group of 60+ volunteers that meet each ship.

These local volunteers personally greet each cruise ship passenger with a signature collector’s lapel pin which features a different local historic landmark each season. Located both on the cruise terminal and in designated areas in Uptown Saint John, these dedicated volunteers also provide passengers with information about our beautiful City.

Port Saint John Collector Pins

Port Saint John Collector Pins

Want to support Port Saint John's Meet & Greet Program? Purchase our 2016 Port Saint John limited edition collector pin.

This year's pin features the King Edward VII Memorial Bandstand. The King Edward VII Memorial Bandstand, with its copper roof and its filigree metal framework, was constructed in 1908 as a gift to Saint John through a donation by the City Coronet Band. It quickly became a favourite location for musical interludes in King’s Square. Restored in 2013, this beloved Saint John landmark still hosts concerts during the summer months.

Pins are available for purchase in the Fundy Cruise Market, as well as at Barbour's General Store.

Proceeds from the sale of Port Saint John collector pins go towards our Meet & Greet Program.
