Come to the village of Chéticamp and Area, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia and discover a land that is celebrated not only for its stunning coastline, but rich Acadian culture, and thriving traditions.
The essence of the carnival-like Mi-Carême is a spirit of joy, laughter and mockery that contrasts with the Lenten period of austerity, severity and penance leading up to Easter. Lent begins the day after Ash Wednesday and ends the day before Easter. Mi-Carême literally means the middle of Lent.
Plan your perfect Cape Breton vacation, including experiences such as the Cabot Trail, the only living Celtic Culture in North America, Canada’s only true links golf course, and the Fortress of Louisbourg.
Visit Les Trois Pignons for a special view into Acadian culture and the history of Chéticamp, a stunning collection of hooked rugs and antiquities, genealogy resource centre and library, and a full range of visitor information services.
