For well over two hundred years, the inhabitants of Chéticamp have kept their unique Acadian culture alive. From France, they brought their greatest treasures: music, language, legends, dances, festivities, and recipes. These traditions, were shaped by the challenges of the pioneers’ lifestyle, the sorrow of the Deportation [hyperlink], the rhythm of the ocean, and the cultural influence of their Scottish and Mi'kmaq neighbours. The result is a rich legacy that is still present today in kitchen parties, restaurants, festivals, and music.

Discover this unique heritage for yourself in Chéticamp’s local artisanal shops, museums, and venues. See a demonstration of the craft behind Chéticamp’s world renowned hooked rugs at Les Trois Pignons museum and visitor centre. Watch the old timers move their feet to fiddle tunes at the local tavern. At le Centre de la Mi-carême, learn about a centuries old mid-Lent festival that is still widely popular in Chéticamp, while trying your hand at mask making.
