La Barque cooperative launches new artisans' festival

La Barque cooperative in Pointe-Verte is giving the Chaleur Region an opportunity to celebrate local craftspeople and local products.

A first-of-its-kind Artisans Festival will take place in June and coincides with the La Barque's second anniversary.

Visitors will have a chance to meet local artists and learn about their techniques and tools used to create their work.

The theme for the inaugural "Festiv'Arts" will focus on Acadian woodworking.

Festiv'Arts is slated to take place June 14th and 15th.
