Madawaska Acadian Festival
2017 Annual Acadian Festival
Celebrating “40 Years in Our Community”
Dear potential Craft Fair Vendor;
August 11th-15th 2017, the town of Madawaska will be hosting its 40th Annual Acadian Festival. The festive theme is “Vive les Acadiens”, “Long live the Acadians”.
The Madawaska Acadian Festival has been celebrating the Acadian Heritage, along with a family reunion, and this year, in 2017 we are happy to announce that Acadian families that began 40 years ago will be celebrated.
We are expecting hundreds of people to converge on our community, and as always, our festival will have a wide variety of activities such as the Main Street Dance, Poutine Palooza, Fireworks, Tintamarre parade, a Family Fun Day with human Foosball, G-Force Laser Tag, and musical entertainment, including “The LeBlanc Family“. Saturday evening we have more concerts, Sunday we have the annual parade, delicious food, bands and much more! You will not want to miss being a part of this exciting and growing community event!
In the past we have had an excellent turn out of people and there is every reason to believe this year will be even better. We are planning new and exciting things! We have enjoyed many people from all over the world coming to celebrate the Acadian Heritage here in the Valley! Through the years, most vendors have been very successful so most return year after year. We welcome you to fill out the attached vendor application so you can have a vending booth here as well!
