During le Festival de l’Escaouette, we guarantee you will find something for the whole family in our celebration of Acadian culture and history.

If we want to explain the definition of Escaouette we must refer back to Latin sources. In Latin, the word ESCA means “food”. When our ancestors celebrated Candlemas, they mostly celebrated the feast of food, the Feast of the ESCA.

In 1976, Festival organizers unanimously chose a name typical of our region “The Festival de l’Escaouette”, an Acadian cultural event in Chéticamp during the summer months. The goal of the Festival is to preserve and inform residents and visitors of our Acadian heritage, and strengthen ties between the Acadian cultural organizations of Chéticamp.
