Come and celebrate in Memramcook!
In 2014, Memramcook, cradle of new Acadia and hub of the Acadian Renaissance, celebrates the 150th anniversary of Collège Saint-Joseph, the first permanent French-language College in Atlantic Canada, which was founded in 1864 by Father Camille Lefebvre.
The Village and many community groups organize numerous activities to mark the event; take part in the celebration on this special anniversary while enjoying Memramcook’s regular attractions.
Discover the wide array of activities and scenic views that the beautiful Memramcook River valley has to offer. Enjoy the open views of the marshlands from the many walking and biking trails. Stop at the Belliveau Orchards for a glass of apple cider or a sample of fruit wine (apple, pear, blueberry, cherry… take your pick!) Go for a drive in the countryside to see the old Gayton covered bridge, the century-old Lourdes church with its grotto and the chapel in Beaumont.
Don't miss the Monument-Lefebvre, which houses an exhibit on the Acadian Odyssey and a concert hall with near-perfect acoustics. If golf is your passion, play a round on the beautiful Memramcook Valley Golf Club, with its picturesque island green on the 12th hole.
Stop at the Société historique de la vallée de Memramcook’s museum and ecomuseum to visit their many displays which provide visitors with an overview of the numerous monuments and historical sites, customs, traditions and historical facts of Memramcook.
