Congres Mondail Acadien 2019
Aug 10-15: PEI
Aug 15-24: NB
The 6th edition of the Congrès mondial acadien will mark the 25th anniversary of the event. The goal of this international gathering, held every 5 years, is to strengthen the ties that unite all Acadian communities throughout the world, all while showcasing a modern and authentic Acadian identity. The Congrès is also an opportunity to welcome all those who are interested in l'Acadie. The event will allow the host region to demonstrate its vitality, its attachment to a vibrant culture, and above all, its legendary openness to the world.
Many families of Acadian descent get together during each Congrès mondial acadien, reuniting with distant cousins or renewing links with their extended family. The Family reunions alone can gather tens of thousands of people, while the event as a whole is expected to attract around 100 000 participants.
But the Congrès mondial acadien is not just about family reunions; during the event, major shows will also be held all over the host region, as well as youth activities, conferences, various cultural and artistic events, and much more.
Today, the Congrès mondial acadien is of great significance to the Acadian people, serving not only as a reminder of where they've been, but as an illustration of how vibrant they are today. The event is proof of our strength as a group and our openness to the world, as our Acadie is becoming more modern and dynamic.
Open: August 10 - August 15
