Also added to the bill on Friday will be Triolet d’Nord, who will walk the streets of downtown Moncton, starting at 4:30 pm, followed on the International Stage by Ten Strings and a Goat Skin, Eastcoast Love Story, H’Sao and Keith Mullins. Taking the stage on Saturday will be Arseneault opening the evening concert at 4:30 pm, succeeded by Alan Jeffries, Samantha Robichaud, El Fuego and the John Boulay Blues Quartet. “I’m extremely excited about this year’s event,” says Mario Bourgeois-Leduc, Event Chair. “Those world-class artists, who include some ECMA winners and nominees, a Juno winner, of couple of CBC/Radio-Canada Revelations, are all coming to Moncton to celebrate our community’s growing cultural diversity. Both events are free to the public and people are invited to wear their dancing shoes!” “The Mosaïq Multicultural Festival team has put together a superb, varied artist line-up for this summer,” adds Mayor George LeBlanc. “The City of Moncton is so proud to partner with MAGMA for the presentation of Mosaïq, and we are pleased to see this event grow year after year. I invite Monctonians and visitors alike to come discover the wonderful talent presented as part of the 2013 Mosaïq Multicultural Festival.” “There are cultural performances and entertainment all afternoon which will provide amusement for the entire family,” mentions Sara Robinson, Event Organizer for Mosaïq 2013. “The concerts performed on the International Stage will commence at 4:30 pm on Friday and Saturday and we promise entire evenings of top-notch performances and world-class music.” There is also a myriad of activities planned for both Friday and Saturday mornings and afternoons. The World Village will be opened from 11 am to 9 pm on Friday, and from 9 am to 9 pm on Saturday, where people can find a variety of international food delicacies and countless artisan crafts to purchase.

The festival has been growing exponentially since its inception by the Multicultural Association of the Greater Moncton Area (MAGMA) in 2004. In 2010 on the occasion of the IAAF World Track and Field Championships, the City of Moncton teamed up with MAGMA to present a larger more impressive multicultural celebration. The festival took on the new brand of Mosaïq Multicultural Festival, which was successfully launched to a receptive audience providing the event with important recognition on the regional, national and international stage. The production partnership continues as both organizations align their respective resources and community contributors to annually showcase this amazing mosaic of cultures.
