La Région Évangéline
For a taste of one of the Island’s founding cultures, drive a few minutes to the west to La Région Évangéline. Here, Prince Edward Island’s vibrant Acadian culture thrives. A visit to The Acadian Museum in Miscouche will set the scene, followed by a tour around this French-speaking area. Some suggested stops include the unique Bottle Houses – Gardens and Glass Expressions in Cap-Egmont and the historical Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Carmel Church. Visitors will delight in crafts from Le Centre d’ Artisanat in Abram-Village, the Quilt Economuseum and, of course, many samplings of traditional Acadian food.
The Évangéline Region is synonymous with lively rhythms, especially during several festivals held through the summer. Next to the festival grounds, you can take in a lobster dinner or Acadian-style buffet at the Centre Expo-Festival in Abram-Village.
