New Brunswick Festivals

OTTAWAAug. 14, 2019 – The Honourable Pablo Rodriguez, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism, announced today that the Government of Canada has increased support to 181 festivals, community celebrations and arts presenters across New Brunswick, totalling $2.1 million so far in 2019‒2020. He also announced that 60 communities across Atlantic Canada, as well as Ottawa, will benefit from $500,100 in new funding for National Acadian Day events on August 15.

Support for cultural festivals, celebrations and events in New Brunswick

This funding will support 181 festivals, community celebrations and arts-presenter organizations in 2019‒2020, and help provide New Brunswick residents and visitors with better access to arts and culture. These projects have a major impact on New Brunswick, as they showcase the province and support its development, promote tourism, and encourage economic growth in the cultural sector throughout the province.

The government provided this funding through the Celebration and Commemoration Program, the Local Festivals component of the Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage Program and the Canada Arts Presentation Fund.

National Acadian Day

The Government of Canada is also providing 60 different organizations with a total of $500,100 in funding to host National Acadian Day celebrations on August 15 across Atlantic Canada and in Ottawa.

As part of this initiative, the Government of Canada will support the August 15 festivities organized as part of the Congrès mondial acadien, including the National Acadian Day Show. The show will feature several renowned artists such as Zachary RichardLisa LeBlancEdith Butler, Visthèn and 1755.

Funding to promote National Acadian Day celebrations is granted through the Department of Canadian Heritage’s Celebration and Commemoration Program.

Additional investment for arts and heritage activities

An additional investment of more than $50 million was announced in the last budget to support arts and heritage activities, including arts programming, festivals and celebrations throughout Canada.

This additional funding will provide increased support to existing clients and permit more organizations to access federal support. It will enable more Canadians to see, hear and appreciate Canada’s talented and diverse artists by bringing festivals and performing arts series to more communities across the country, celebrate our communities’ diverse origins, and reaffirm our commitment to reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples.

Quotes

“Our government understands that festivals, arts performances and community celebrations are vital to the success of Canada’s creative sector. They help develop and showcase the tremendous talent of Canadian artists; support our efforts to advance diversity, inclusion and reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples; and support the growth of our creative economy in communities across the country.

“I am also very pleased to announce the historic addition of National Acadian Day to the Celebration and Commemoration Program, which will result in support for festivities in more than 60 communities. In this symbolic year, in which we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Official Languages Act and the 25th anniversary of the Congrès mondial acadien, this is an important way to recognize and celebrate the distinct and vibrant culture of the Acadian community, and the many contributions Acadians have made to arts, culture and heritage in Canada.” —The Honourable Pablo Rodriguez, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism

“On National Acadian Day, Acadians express their vitality and their pride in communities throughout the Atlantic region and beyond. They enrich this country with their cultural wealth and their leadership in the Canadian Francophonie. I look forward to celebrating their heritage with them.” —The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Tourism, Official Languages and La Francophonie

“I’m thrilled that our government is helping bring folks together by supporting over two dozen festivals, celebrations and arts events in MonctonRiverview and Dieppe! From jamming out at the Festival Acadie Rock to celebrating diversity at the Mosaïq Multicultural Festival, there really is something for everyone. I’m especially excited that our National Acadian Day is eligible for funding from the Celebration and Commemoration Program for the very first time, as we prepare to welcome the world for the Congrès mondial acadien.” —The Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Health and Member of Parliament (Moncton–Riverview–Dieppe)

“Across Atlantic Canada, local festivals celebrate the best of our heritage and the vitality of our communities. Here in Fundy Royal, they exemplify why we choose to live, work and play here, and are often a beacon for people exploring our region. This year we will mark the first ever National Acadian Day in Quispamsis, celebrating and sharing culture with the whole community!” —Alaina Lockhart, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Tourism, Official Languages and La Francophonie and Member of Parliament (Fundy Royal)

“For more than 15 years, the Société nationale de l’Acadie has bolstered its efforts to have National Acadian Day officially recognized. Acadians have been celebrating this day since 1881. The inclusion of Acadia in the Celebration and Commemoration Program recognizes the unique contribution of Acadia in building Canada, and allows Acadians to celebrate our pride and our sense of belonging within Confederation, as we should.” —Louise Imbeault, President, Société nationale de l’Acadie

“I am extremely proud that our government has made National Acadian Day eligible for funding under the Celebration and Commemoration Program, just like Canada Day, Saint-Jean Baptiste Day and National Indigenous Peoples Day.

“Acadians have a distinct place in our country’s history and in our Canadian identity. They were among the first to settle in North America in 1604, survived the Great Upheaval in 1755, and are today a proud, courageous and resilient people. Acadian have made outstanding contributions to building our country.

“We mark National Acadian Day on August 15. This occasion is a unique opportunity for us, the Acadian people, to celebrate the wealth of our culture, our language, our heritage and our history. Long live Acadia!” —Serge Cormier, Member of Parliament (Acadie–Bathurst)

“Culture is at the core of who we are as a people. Canadian Heritage supports our festivals, our cultural events, our artists and our communities with all their wonderful projects. I couldn’t be prouder of my Acadian history and culture, and I am delighted to be part of a government that recognizes its substantial value.” —René Arseneault, Member of Parliament (Madawaska–Restigouche)

“Celebrating our culture is vital to our growth and our vitality. These investments are important for celebrating Acadia and the richness of our country. I wish a happy quinzou to all Acadians!” —Darrell J. Samson, Member of Parliament (Sackville–Preston–Chezzetcook)

Quick Facts

The projects were funded through Canadian Heritage’s the Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage Program, the Canada Arts Presentation Fund, and the Celebration and Commemoration Program.

The Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage program helps provide better opportunities for local artists, artisans, heritage performers and specialists to be involved in their community through festivals, events and projects.

The Canada Arts Presentation Fund provides financial assistance to organizations that professionally stage arts festivals or performing arts series. It also supports organizations that assist arts presenters as well as their support organizations. With this funding, the government supports more than 1,350 festival and performing arts events in more than 400 communities across Canada.

The Celebration and Commemoration Program provides funding to community-based activities celebrating and promoting National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21, Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day on June 24, Canadian Multiculturalism Day on June 27 and Canada Day on July 1.
