Centre de la Mi-Carême

Mi-Carême (Mid-Lent) is a celebration involving masks and disguises. The Centre de la Mi-Carême offers a unique display of locally crafted masks and interactive exhibits depicting the evolution of “La Mi-Carême”, one of the oldest Acadian traditions, still celebrated in the area every winter. Visitors can learn more about this celebration at the Centre by watching a series of short theatre pieces. Mask making and rug hooking workshops are also offered and interpretive guides are on site to answer your questions. Visit our boutique where you will find a variety of products made by local artisans.

The Centre de la Mi-Carême is located in the village of Grand-Etang in Inverness County, Cape Breton Island. Bus tours are welcome.
