Acadian Festival in Madawaska - June 24 to July 4

Madawaska will again be the site of Maine's largest cultural Festival. Though we have lost our lovely Acadia, we will never forget her. We will continue to speak her language, sing her songs, and celebrate her traditions;for the spirit of those first Acadians lives on in all of us.

As we do each year, in conjunction with the Acadian Festival, a family reunion is held, celebrating one of the Valley's pioneer families. This year, we are honored to celebrate the Lagacé family.
