National Acadian Day

The Acadian people, pioneers and builders of the country, have celebrated Acadian Day on August 15 since 1881, the year in which the first national Acadian convention was held in Memramcook, New Brunswick. The National Acadian Day Act was passed by the Government of Canada in 2003.

National Acadian Day is an opportunity to celebrate Acadian cultural vitality in Canada.
