From March 1–31, Islanders are invited to take part in the 26th edition of les Rendez-vous de la Francophonie (RVF) to celebrate francophone culture across Canada. To promote this important event on PEI, the francophone community is offering a month-long lineup of rich, diversified and educational programming under the theme: Launch into discovery. 

Among the wide range of activities on offer this year, the celebrations will be kicking off in Rollo Bay at the Pavillon de l’Est on March 2, with a community culinary meal prepared by chef Robert Pendergast, followed by a special concert featuring 6 HEARTS. Comprising of Emmanuelle LeBlanc, Pascal Miousse, Jake Charron and Tim Chaisson, 6 HEARTS will present a dazzling fusion of Acadian fiddle, flute, percussion and vocals, combined with traditional Eastern PEI fiddle, guitar, piano and vocals, to form a unique and captivating blend of traditional music. The evening kicks off with a meal for purchase at 5:30 pm followed by a free concert at 7 pm. 

During this month devoted to celebrating francophone culture, all are invited to participate in a wide variety of community activities, including lively performances, cooking and tasting events, artistic exhibitions, outdoor activities, film screenings, activities taking place in Island schools and libraries, as well as online activities, contests and podcasts.
