We are proud to present the Canadians Celebrate Acadia live show on this Web page. Come back and see us from across the country at 8:30 (Ottawa time) to experience this important cultural moment!
The Acadians were the first Europeans to settle on the territory that would later become Canada. For the first time, the National Capital will host a unique event to recognize and celebrate how Acadians have helped build our country.
This initiative will make it possible to learn about Acadian contributions to Canada’s cultural fabric, while recognizing the historical presence of Acadians in Canada and appreciating the uniqueness of Acadian culture in all its diversity. It will also allow residents of the region to discover and celebrate this important day.
