The University of Maine at Fort Kent Alumni Association, in conjunction with the Fort Kent Senior Center Club will host a Toast and Jam Acadian Kitchen Party to be held on Friday, June 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Fort Kent Senior Center, located at 20 Pine Street.

Come join us for a night of Acadian live music, toast, and jam. Admission is $5 for the general public and children under 12 attend free.

The evening is sure to please with performers like Don Levesque and Roger Damboise of the Acadian Singers; Curt Harvey and Sam Oaks of The Fiddleheads; and other invited guests.

“Since the Acadian World Congress will be here later this summer, let's experience a common form of entertainment in which our forefathers participated. The kitchen party was a Friday night or Saturday night past time with friends and neighbors. It featured well-known local talents, as well as up-and-coming talent,” stated Roger Damboise, UMFK alumni association board member and chair.

The Toast and Jam Acadian Kitchen Party is a wonderful cultural event that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Be sure to experience it for yourself.
