Fes­ti­val set for July 25-26

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FEATURES/ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
