Head out for some traditional Celtic music and dancing in the evenings at one of the many town pubs or get your toes tapping all evening at a ceilidh. Join in the fun at le Festival de l’Escaouette that takes place in nearby Chéticamp all summer long or be dazzled by the dramatic colours of the rolling mountains as we celebrate the Celtic Colours International Music Festival.
