Festival de l’EscaouetteDate: Wed, Aug 3 2016 - Sun, Aug 7 2016
During le Festival de l’Escaouette, we guarantee you will find something for the whole family in our celebration of Acadian culture and history. Our schedule consists of fun family activities such as the official opening, a “foulerie” in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, Acadian kitchen parties in several venues, Ça chante encore on the steps of Église Saint-Pierre, a farmer’s and artisan market, 5 and 10 km walk/run, children’s parade, the Festival parade, a gala and much more. Be entertained by our musicals and comedies put on by local performers, move to the beat of our soul-felt Acadian traditional music found in many venues or partake in our cultural events planned throughout the celebration. Venez pour la fête!
