Dive into the annual Acadian Day festivities! This festival brings you to the heart of how Acadians celebrate their special place in history and show their pride of heritage. Prepare for the Tintamarre – a joyous parade known for its loud and boisterous participants – by crafting your own special noise-making instrument. Your challenge is to create a “party mop” out of household items that rivals the Acadians’ creative instruments. Make it as silly as you can! On Acadian Day, with your face painted in the Acadian colours, grab your mop and join the parade of noisy, happy celebrants winding down the streets of Edmundston. Savour an authentic Acadian meal and keep time with the musical performers who cap off the party. Everyone is Acadian on this festive holiday!
