The Mi-Carême Centre

The Mi-Carême Centre opened in May 2009. Its interactive exhibit offers the opportunity to discover and to explore the Mi-Carême tradition.

Short theatre pieces permit glimpses of aspects of this rich cultural celebration. The Centre also offers mask making and rug hooking workshops.

Upon arrival to the Mi-Carême Centre, interpretive guides will explain the origin of this living tradition.
