The setting for this living history village is outstanding. The views from the boardwalk as you approach the site in the middle of the Buctouche River are picture perfect. The musical performances were excellent. If you don't speak French, however, your experience will be limited as the storytellers and skits are in French. The publicity said to identify yourself as...

Le Pays de la Sagouine is a village based on a book and a television show, much like Avonlea in PEI is based on Anne of Green Gables. To get you money's worth, plan on staying the whole day. You may even want to read the book and watch the episodes, to get a sense of what to expect. I... More

We just spent the day here and I had some convincing to do. Both kids (9 & 12) were complaining that it would be boring as we arrived and my husband was clearly only there to please me. But everyone was won over pretty quickly by the lively characters. We enjoyed chatting with the barber, listening to music, and stories... More

This was so much more than expected. The more you participate the more you learn and enjoy what is going on. It's in French so some understanding is a plus but you can certainly enjoy the music regardless. It is so upbeat that it's difficult to stay put. The stories are so good and a must to hear as they...

We went to the Acadian day ''tintamarre'' on august 15th 2013 that took us from Downtown Bouctouche to the Pays de la sagouine with our two toddlers, it was amazing! The entertainment was great, the kids got their faces painted and really loved it! The Acadian spirit is really captured during this day. It did take us a very long... More

This cultural gem is an treasure for those of you who like history and want to learn a bit more about the Acadian culture and food found here in New Brunswick. If you can go to the French versions, it is better but they do offer English versions...check with the facility to find out when. Well worth the visit!

We spent an afternoon there this summer, and caught a nice bunch of musicians (Les Bagosseux) performing on stage. They happened to be touring New Brunswick promoting the World Acadian Congress 2014. It was an excellent show, and the Island is a great place to visit.

We stopped by Le pays de la Sagouine earlier this month as part of a New Brunswick tour and I was really impressed by this historically themed attraction. We were shown around by a lovely lady who had a fiddler with her, they took us to a mock up of a kitchen party where they explained this tradition and taught... More
