Provincial French Celebrations

Joie de vivre!

This year's provincial French celebrations (Rendez-vous de la Francophonie 2013) will take place March 8 to 24, 2013. This is the 22nd edition of the Rendez-vous de la Francophonie and this annual event celebrates the French language and Acadian culture on Prince Edward Island.

The theme for this year's Rendez-vous de la Francophonie is 'Joie de vivre', an expression that means a good mood, a sense of humor and fun times. School and community events are taking place across the province to celebrate our Island "joie de vivre". The Acadian and Francophone Community Advisory Committee invites you to the Carrefour de la Francophonie at the Confederation Centre of the Arts on March 11. This brand new event will celebrate the richness and diversity of our provincial Francophone community. You must confirm your presence for this event no later than March 7 by calling 902-854-3603.

The complete schedule of provincial French celebrations events can be found online.
