A world of ocean marvels, cultural wonders and family-friendly fun await you in this charming seaside community. Richibucto has a rich and vibrant history, and the unique cultural landscape created almost 4 centuries ago – a combination of Mi’kmaq, Spanish, Acadian, Celtic and English cultures – is still alive and well today in the region’s food, architecture and celebrations.
Stop by the Richibucto Visitor Information Centre for a panel display depicting Richibucto’s colourful history and for information about local events, festivals and not-to-be-missed attractions. The Richibucto River Museum's impressive collection of portraits and documents will provide you with an eye-opening window to the past.
Children and adults alike will enjoy the interpretive programs at Kouchibouguac National Park
, where visitors can listen to fireside stories, go on a Voyageur canoe adventure or join the Young Naturalists Club. Bring out a little family-friendly competition with a game of Farmersgolf at Bonar Law Historic Site. The shoe-shaped clubs and unusually large balls will have the little ones giggling with delight!
The region’s beautiful coastal landscape can best be seen with a stroll along the seaside trails of Jardine Municipal Park and a visit to the great sand dunes of nearby Irving Eco-Centre, La Dune de Bouctouche. You won’t want to miss the “Cleanest Show on Earth” at Olivier Soapery: Canada's Soap Economuseum, just a short drive away in Saint-Anne-de-Kent. With lively shows and heavenly products, it’s a delicious treat for all your senses!
