Overview

Mi-Carême (Mid-Lent) is a celebration involving masks and disguises.

Visitors can learn more about this celebration at the Centre by watching a series of short theatre pieces. Mask making and rug hooking workshops are also offered and interpretive guides are on site to answer your questions. Visit our boutique where you will find a variety of products made by local artisans.
