Photographer Jonathan Kozowyk made the trip by prop plane to the far northern reaches of the town of Madawaska, Maine, last summer to capture the spirit of a festival and its community.  Here are a few of the highlights of what he photographed during the beginning of the Acadian Festival, an annual gathering of Acadian people from near and far that celebrates the importance of their shared heritage.  Beyond the festival, Jonathan found the vast landscapes and the beauty of the architecture that defines this region.

    This article about Acadians was one of the most interesting and heartwarming stories I’ve ever read in Yankee Magazine. Thank you so much.

    I am a descendent of the Hudon dit Beaulieu family. I am originally from Caribou but now reside in Vermont. I was very disappointed that I was unable to attend the Festival in 2013. I would be most interested in obtaining an informational book listing my forbearers. Can someone help me with this?
