Music is the cornerstone of our local culture. In fact, Acadians have their own special word for this – a good party with lots of music is referred to as a “tyme”. Look for the Music of the Bay (Musique de la Baie) logo throughout the area and discover the lively music and folklore of this region. Performances are from July 1 to September15; the schedule repeats weekly. See schedule for performance dates.
