“Grand Pré 2017 – A Peace and Friendship Gathering of the Mi’kmaw and Acadian People,” administered by the Ulnooweg Development Group, will include a series of cultural and educational events that will lead up to a four-day multidisciplinary festival in Grand Pré in August 2017. The initiative will celebrate the historic relationship between two of the founding cultures in Atlantic Canada, the Mi’kmaq and the Acadians.

The events of Grand Pré 2017 are in keeping with the priorities of the Government of Canada for the celebration of Canada 150. Two important themes for the Canada 150 year are reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, and the active participation of citizens in learning about different cultures.
