Voici the Valley Cultureway

Welcome to the St. John Valley, which we fondly call “the Valley”. You’ll find us where the United States and Canada meet along the St. John River, the international border. Here at the top of the state of Maine, the province of New Brunswick is our neighbor. Around 55,000 people mostly of French heritage live here.

Voici the Valley Cultureway celebrates the places and culture of the international St. John Valley on both sides of the St. John River. Drive along the river and experience a hundred miles of natural beauty, cultural and historic sites, and the Valley way of life!

The Cultureway is charted like a big figure-8 loop with two self-guided tours—a Down River Tour in the east, and an Up River Tour in the west—each crossing the international border. Because the Cultureway is self-guided, there’s no hard and fast rule on how to follow the tours. Start and end anywhere you like!

The Voici the Valley Audio Story and Guide was created to enrich your experience of the St. John Valley. The audio story is a documentary on CD with 80 minutes of music and stories that feature the history, culture, and traditions of the region. The 28-page guide has maps, photographs, and descriptions of cultural sites and communities.

Voici is pronounced vwah-see. Voici the Valley means “Here is the Valley,” a name that reflects the French and English spoken here.
