Festival set for July 25-26
The 21st edition of the Rendez-vous Rustico festival is set for July 25-26 at St-Augustine’s square in Rustico, and the team at the Conseil acadien de Rustico (CaR) is working hard to assure this year’s festival will be a continuous wave of fun for people of all ages and interests.
Festival regulars will be able to enjoy once again the duathlon, the prize bingo and the Lennie Gallant concert, among other new activities.
A festival is not complete without food, so on Saturday starting at 4:30 p.m., the CaR will combine a meal of fresh island mussels and baked potatoes with all trimmings ($7) all the while being entertained by a youth talent show, a Guerre des Toiles - a live painting competition - and a kitchen party with Jonny Arsenault.
On Sunday, 5-7 p.m., a traditional-homemade Acadian supper with chicken fricot, meat pie, galettes blanches and strawberry shortcake will be served (cost $12 in advance or $15 at the door) prior to the Gallant concert.
These meals are being served at the Centre acadien GrandRustico, 2244 Church Rd., Route 243 in Rustico.
