Le Carrefour de l’Îsle-Saint-Jean will be celebrating their 30th anniversary on September 10. To deviate from the norm of hiring professional talent as entertainment, they have decided to create a competition for teens and young adults which will not only showcase a fresh group of talent on stage at the Carrefour, but will also be an opportunity for these talented young artists to gain further experience in front of an audience, not to mention, a chance to win a $1000 cash prize.
“We wanted to find a way to involve teens and young adults at the Carrefour. It’s a terrific way to bring awareness of the Carrefour and francophone community to other communities and hopefully spark their interest in the French language and Acadian culture,” shares Executive Director Chérine Stevula.
The Carrefour is looking for all types of talent, from bands to dancers to magic acts. All festivities will be hosted in French, however, all teens and young adults who are interested in the competition are invited to sign up. There will also be a consolation prize for all acts.
