Regional festivities for National Acadian Day were held in Edmundston from August 13th to 15th. Participants from the three sectors of the region participated in the festivities with pride and enthusiasm.

Various activities were held over a period of three days. Participants enjoyed themselves while exploring and discovering the talents of artists and craftsmen from the three sectors of Acadia of the Lands and Forests.

Despite bad weather, the festivities ended with a bright sunshine, Acadian colors – setting a new crowd for the participation in the traditional “Tintamarre”.

"Promoting cross-border exchanges is part of the mandate of the Core Leadership Team. These regional celebrations are therefore another opportunity to strengthen our economic and community ties”, says Lise Ouellette, chairwoman of the Core Leadership Team.

Partner in this event, the Core Leadership Team, wishes to thank and congratulate the City of Edmundston for all the work accomplished in organizing this year’s August 15th celebrations.

See you in Madawaska, Maine, in 2017
During the official ceremonies after the “Tintamarre”, Ms. Ouellette announced that following a call for proposals, the Town of Madawaska, Maine, was chosen to host the 2017 regional festivities.

Mr. Vincent Frallicciardi, counselor for the Town of Madawaska, invited all residents of Acadia of the Lands and Forests to come celebrate in 2017. The regional festivities will be held in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of the Acadian Festival. Another reason to celebrate!
