Acadians, francophones, and francophiles from near and far will gather on PEI next summer.
2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the World Acadian Congress, which Prince Edward Island will host for the first time along with southeast New Brunswick. The 10-day- celebration begins in Abram-Village August 10th and ends in Shediac, NB on August 24th. It’s expected to draw nearly 100,000 people.
Along with other provincial and federal partners, Prince Edward Island will provide $1 million in funding to the World Acadian Congress.
