Inaugurated for the first time during the Gala des prix Éloizes in Tracadie, in 2001, the Festival Moisson d'ART is put on by the Société culturelle des Tracadilles. The diversity of works presented makes it possible to highlight sectors of the arts and culture that are less well known. It focuses on an artistic universe spanning the realms of literature, dance, visual arts, theatre, and classical, popular, and traditional music. Though most of the guest artists taking part in this festival are recognized by their peers as professional artists, there is also room for the emerging generation.
The festival Moisson d’ART exists to provide a gathering place for a variety of artists and their disciplines.
