The Acadian FestivalSince 1978, the Town of Madawaska Maine has been the site of the Acadian Festival, which has grown to become the State of Maine's largest cultural festival.
Each year at the end of June, the population of the St. John Valley, which is located in the north easternmost corner of the United States, celebrates the unique Acadian culture and heritage with a number of events that serve as a reminder of the past and celebration of the present.
In addition to these festivities, a local family name is selected to celebrate the reunion of a lifetime over the weekend. In years past, hundreds and thousands of descendants with names like Cyr, Hébert, Daigle and Nadeau, to name a few, have visited Madawaska to attend their family reunion.
