What is the purpose of the pin?

The Congrès mondial acadien 2019 pin is your access pass to the big opening and closing events as well as to the evening shows in the Extrême frontière space in Moncton from August 17 to 23. 

Does the pin include admission to the 25th Anniversary Show?

No. Though the 25th Anniversary Show will open the Extrême frontière event, tickets for this show are being sold separately. 

Does the pin include admission to the community days? 

No. Tickets to community day events are being sold separately from the pin.

Do I need my pin to get in to the big August 15th show in Dieppe? 

No. All of the National Acadian Day celebrations are free!

Do the two versions of the pin give you access to different events? 

No. The Congrès Mondial acadien 2019 gives you a choice of two different pin designs, but they both let you get in to the same events. You just have to choose which one you prefer!

How can I get a CMA 2019 pin? 

You can buy the pin for $20 on our website under ticketing, by going to the CMA 2019’s offices in Moncton, NB (774 Main Street, Suite 110) or in Wellington, PEI (48 Mill Road), or at the major event sites.

Can I buy a ticket for just one major event or one evening show in the Extrême frontière space?
