34th Annual Acadian Festival

It's claim to fame may be "The Most Northeastern Town in the USA", but Madawaska, Maine proudly hosts an annual Acadian Festival in August. Some of the planned events are family reunions, quilting shows, art exhibits, parades, musical groups, a bed race down Main Street, and a classic antique car show.

The fun begins Thursday, Aug. 11 and runs through Monday, Aug. 15, 2011. The full schedule and links for accomodations can be found here:

The Town of Madawaska in the St. John River Valley has been home to Acadian families since about 1785.

The Town's website welcomes vistors in both English and French:
