The Farmers’ Bank of Rustico and the Doucet House work alongside each of the regional committees of the Société acadienne et francophone de l’Île (SAF’Île) on Festival “Meat Pie! Six regional competitions take place across Prince Edward Island with one taking place in each of the different Acadian and Francophone regions across the province (DeBlois, Évangéline, Summerside, Rustico, Charlottetown et Rollo Bay).
