Letter from the Acadian Festival Committee President

Brenda Forbes 

Dear Fellow Acadians,

It is with great pleasure to welcome everyone to our 42nd Annual Acadian Festival, taking place in one of
the four corners of the United States – Madawaska, Maine, from August 15-18th! Vive les Acadiens!
The Madawaska Acadian Festival has celebrated this great Acadian heritage for 42 years! This event
allows you to enjoy several aspects of our culture which includes authentic Acadian food, Acadian music,
artists of the region, and great French-Acadian hospitality.

Visit historical sites throughout the region, and join us as we begin celebrating families of the valley with so many NEW activities and events being introduced this year.

You will find so many activities and we hope you will join us for all events and leave
with great memories that will last a lifetime. Bienvenue a Madawaska, Maine, notre coin de “l’Acadie
de Terres et Forêts.”

For more information visit our website: or call 207-316-8333.
