Écomusée de la Mi-Carême

Originating in the Middle Ages, Mi-Carême has withstood the passage of time and continues to be celebrated in a few places around the world.  On Îles de la Madeleine, only the village of Fatima has preserved this unique traditional feast which is a joyful mixture of disguises, music and joie de vivre.  Allow yourself to be swept away by this festive celebration.  A visit to the Mi-Carême Ecomuseum is a journey to the very heart of a tradition as well as a singular cultural experience. Welcome!
