Spectacle « L'Acadie des terres et forêts en fête » - Témiscouata-sur-le-Lac

This show - Acadia's Land and Forest Celebration - has already attracted over 110,000 spectators across Canada and the United States and will be presented this summer in Témiscouata-sur-le-Lac at BeauLieu Culturel! 

The project was born out of a desire to promote the Témiscouata region and highlight its rich heritage, culture and art, which is unfortunately little known.  

The performance, designed for audiences of all ages, includes theatre, song and dance, allowing spectators to enjoy an immersive experience while discovering Témiscouata history through its colourful characters, historical events and legends.  

Grey Owl, Marie-Blanc, Fred Lévesque, the Robichaud brothers, Aubert de Lachenaie, Curé Cyr, Lamothe Cadillac, Philip Long, Ponik, the Grand Portage, Dignity Operation, Roch Voisine, Triquet and Ménard, the Aroostook War, the Festival de la Colère, Éric Charrier, the JAL, the Madawaska Seigneury and the maple industry will be featured, just to name a few. 

L'Acadie des terres et forêts en fête has won several prestigious awards over the course of its career, and the curtain has not yet fallen on the last performance... Don't miss it! 

This show is only in French.

Centre d'interprétation du sentier du Portage - Notre-Dame-du-Portage

At the "École de l'Anse" in Notre-Dame-du-Portage, the Chemin du Portage Interpretation Center tells you the story of the Portage Road which, for 275 years, has led travelers from St. Lawrence River to Témiscouata.

This strategic route has played a fundamental role in the development of Bas-Saint-Laurent, but also of Canada. From Notre-Dame-du-Portage to Témiscouata-sur-le-Lac to finally reach Acadia as far as Halifax in Nova Scotia, this road has had multiple vocations: military road, postal road and Canadian communication route. This path is therefore of national importance and bears witness, through its diversity, to the peoples who have taken it (Wolastoqiyik, French, Acadian, British).

Meet at École de l'Anse in Notre-Dame-du-Portage from Wednesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until September 5, 2022.
