Festival de la Mi-Carême 2022

51, Old Cabot Trail Rd


Next Date: Mar 20, 2022

A two hundred year old festival that celebrates dance, music and the Acadian culture.

During Mi-Carême many people, called les mi-carêmes, disguised from head to toe, visit their neighbors, who try to guess their identity. When the guessing game is over, the mi-carêmes unmask and enjoy a treat before heading to their next destination where the game begins again.

Although once practiced in all Acadian communities, it is only still celebrated in the Acadian communities of Saint-Joseph-du-Moine, Magré and Chéticamp.
