Congrès mondial acadien 2019
The Congrès mondial acadien has become a not-to-be-missed event held every five years. The 6th edition, from August 10 to 24, 2019, will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the event.
For the first time, Prince Edward Island will host the Congrès. It will also mark the great return of the event to southeastern New Brunswick, where everything started in 1994.
The mission of the Congrès mondial acadien is to strengthen ties among Acadian communities everywhere, while demonstrating the modernity and reality of the Acadian identity. It also provides an opportunity to welcome all those with an interest in and a soft spot for Acadia. The Congrès is an ideal showcase to highlight our vitality and attachment to our culture, as well as our openness to the world.
Each edition brings together many families of Acadian extraction around celebrations that reunite distant cousins and extended family members.
The Congrès mondial acadien is also a major event, presented throughout the host territory, complete with organized activities for young people, conferences, cultural and artistic events and much more. It will definitely be the Acadian experience of the year!
