From humble beginnings in 1974 the Festivals Acadiens et Creoles has grown to a two and a half day event with more than 72 hours of music.  Dr. Barry Ancelet joined 'Mornings With Ken and Bernie' today and described the Festival as a festival celebrating "us".

Ancelet said,

Media people will come up and ask how will the Festival be bigger and better?  Sometimes it doesn't have to be bigger and better it just has to be as good as it ever was.

When asked to compare Festivals Acadiens et Creoles and Festival International Ancelet said,

One festival in spring and this one in fall.  Festival International celebrates our connection to the outside world and Festival Acadiens celebrates ourselves.
