Wed, Jun 1, 2016 to Sat, Oct 15, 2016
The spirit of l’Acadie runs deep in Nova Scotia.

Stroll along the shores where Acadians first arrived in the area with a 10th generation Acadian tour guide(of Candlelight Graveyard Tour fame).

Go to the wharf where 1664 Acadians were deported from Annapolis Royal. Hear the interpreter Alan's amazing personal story of his ancestors' deportation. Visit the site where the history book was written that was used as reference for the poem "Evangeline". Enjoy a romantic modern-day Acadian love story. Retrace the renaissance of the Acadian culture. Discover the Cajun connection. Listen to Acadian music ; kick up your heels and put your best foot forward with a simple Acadian dance .
