Every year, for 40 years now, Edmundston and the Madawaska area vibrate for five days to the rhythm of the Foire Brayonne. Edmundston takes on a festive air and welcomes thousands of festival-goers. Our summer bash has earned an enviable place and an original niche among the country's cultural summer festivals.
A festival celebrating its 40th anniversary is worthy of a party! One of our trademarks in Edmundston is the pleasure we get in welcoming people to the area. This will no doubt be reflected once again during the 40th Foire Brayonne.
City Council joins me in recognizing the hard work of all the volunteers and partners who, for four decades, have thrilled us. This year will be no exception, we are convinced.
Happy 40th Foire Brayonne to all! Make way for the party!
Mayor Cyrille Simard
and members of Edmundston City Council
