Festival international Contes en Îles

The international Storytelling Festival "Contes en Îles", flagship of oral heritage in the Magdalen Islands is coming back for a 17th edition. This year, bearers of different histories and traditions will plow the land and scour the seas in order to harvest for you the fruits of the collective imaginary. Madelinots storytellers will once again be joined by artists from the mainland, the Americas or overseas in the context of performances, chats, narrated excursions and awards.
