Historically, the Rendez-vous Rustico festival was held in one location in Rustico, PEI and took place over the course of a specific weekend every July. However, it was decided to tweak the name a bit and call it: “Rendez-vous à Rustico,” as organizers want to feature the whole region and various events taking place in Rustico throughout the year under the new branding.
After a two-year hiatus, the Conseil acadien de Rustico will once again present their annual Lennie Gallant concert, a Rendez-vous à Rustico event, inside St. Augustine’s Church. This annual concert is one the many events that will take place in the area under this new, but familiar name—Rendez-vous à Rustico.
“Lennie Gallant has gained loyalty from his spectators around the world who come back year after year to watch him sing on the stage of the oldest wooden church on the Island,” says Andréa Deveau, Executive Director of the Conseil acadien de Rustico.
Not every Acadian community can boast of having produced one of Canada’s most award-winning singer-songwriters. Rustico, PEI can however be extremely proud of raising Lennie Gallant, say the organizers.
It is recommended to purchase advance tickets. Doors open at 7:15 pm.
