Kedgwick is a Canadian rural community in Restigouche County, New Brunswick. Originally a local improvement district, then an incorporated village, Kedgwick became a rural community in 2012 when it amalgamated with the surrounding parish of Grimmer.[3]

Located in the Appalachian Mountains in the western part of the county, Kedgwick is approximately 75 kilometres southwest of Campbellton and 15 kilometres east of the Restigouche River along Route 17.

Being surrounded by woods, Kedgwick is spectacular during the Fall season. Every autumn the population celebrates it with the "Festival d'Automne" (Fall fest).[4]
