Situated next to the Chaleur Bay, Caraquet is a vibrant exemple of the vitality of the Acadian culture. All year long, the town buzzes with cultural and artistic activities, like the FAVA (Festival of Visual Arts in the Atlantic Provinces), the Festivin (wine festival), the Gala de la chanson (singing competition), Blues Festival, Caraquet’s Acadian Poetry Festival and the popular Acadian Festival, which brings thousands of people to Caraquet every year and ends with a great and colorful Tintamarre during the National Acadian Day on August 15th.
To relive a bit of the past, you must travel only a few minutes to experience the Village Historique Acadien. This recreated historical village features buildings dating between 1770 and 1950 filled with lively characters who will gladly explain the daily lives of Acadians after the deportation. Caraquet also offers a variety of restaurants in which you can discover all the different flavours of Acadie.
