Word from the President

It is with great honor that I accepted the presidency of the Board of Directors of the Carrefour Mondial de l’accordéon. First volunteer, then administrator and treasurer but above all passionate about the instrument, I want to pursue the orientations in pleasure and success. I look forward to collaborating with my colleagues on the Board of Directors, filled with people with very diverse skill sets.

The Carrefour Mondial de l’accordéon is an international event bringing together artists around a unifying instrument. Let’s all give ourselves time to enjoy these moments of melody, allowing us to travel from Montmagny!

It is also in collaboration with several financial partners such as the International School of Music of Montmagny and the Accordion Museum, that we will be able to pursue the mission and move towards the realization of new projects.

We look forward to meeting you often at our next events and we are proud of the influence that the Carrefour Mondial de l’accordéon brings to our MRC.

Mister Marc Laurin

Montmagny City Mayor 

The least we can say is that the summer of 2023 will be culturally significant in Montmagny! In addition to having the privilege of admiring a unique exhibition by Grand Master Riopelle as part of his 100th anniversary, we will also have the chance to welcome accordion masters to our house during the traditional musical rendezvous.

I can only rejoice at the idea of seeing these many visitors flocking to our beautiful city, thirsting for culture and wanting to admire the talent of all these virtuosos. We are really blessed to have access to these talented artists for a few days and I sincerely hope that we will be able to take full advantage of it.

The members of the municipal council join me in welcoming the accordionists participating in this 34th edition as well as the visitors who will come to Montmagny to experience this great music festival! Good World Accordion Crossroads to all!

The mayor,

Maire de la ville de l'accordéon

The Honourable Pascale St-Onge

Minister of Canadian Heritage

Welcome to the Carrefour mondial de l’accordéon in Montmagny!

The accordion transcends cultural and linguistic borders. Rich in history and sound, it has the power to stir our emotions as it makes us tap our feet. The Carrefour mondial de l’accordéon—a beloved event that celebrates the cultural and musical heritage of our country—has paid tribute to the accordion for the past 34 years. With every edition, the festival attracts passionate musicians who are keen to show their talent and share their love for this iconic instrument.

As Minister of Canadian Heritage, I congratulate everyone who dedicated their time and effort to making this musical celebration possible. Thank you for creating a unique experience for both artists and audiences.

The Honourable Pascale St-Onge
