The goal of the Moncton Armenian Festival is to promote Armenian culture in the Greater Moncton Area. This idea was initiated by members of the Armenian community of Moncton, part of Maritimes Armenian Association, which unites approximately 100 families living in the Maritime Provinces. In each edition, the Armenian Festival takes you on a voyage of discovery: from the origins of the great “historic Armenia” to the discovery of present-day Armenia and the significant Armenian diaspora throughout the world. To address the diversity and vivacity of a culture that was threatened with extinction at the onset of the first genocide of the 20th
century… To create a link between here and over there… To be born into the diaspora or to be born in Armenia, on roads with common roots, from yesterday to tomorrow… The Festival also allows local communities to discover and understand this rich and tormented history, as is shown by the more than 2500-year-old exceptionally vibrant Armenian heritage.
Each edition brings out a specific aspect of Armenian culture.Sylvia KasparianPresident and Artistic Director
