National Acadian Day
The Acadian people, pioneers and builders of the country, have celebrated Acadian Day on August 15 since 1881, the year in which the first national Acadian convention was held in Memramcook, New Brunswick. The National Acadian Day Act was passed by the Government of Canada in 2003.
National Acadian Day highlights the contribution of Acadians to the Canadian cultural fabric, recognizes their historical presence on the land, and celebrates their cultural specificity in all its diversity.
This year, we will be celebrating National Acadian Day at the Fortress with music and food in our Storehouse Tavern. Please follow us on Facebook for more details on this celebration.
