Centre of Acadian culture beside Native and Anglophone communities

Although it is located between the Esgenoôpetitj (Burnt Church) First Nation and the Anglophone community of Tabusintac, Neguac is an important centre of Acadian and French culture. The 396-seat Théâtre Richard-Denys is an ultramodern multifunctional venue able to host not only local cultural productions but also performances from outside professional companies. It's a comfortable setting for plays and concerts.

In 1988, Neguac was proclaimed the "Savoie Family Capital" to recognize one of its founding families. In commemoration of the event, the municipality inaugurated the Savoie Family Monument.

The Otho Robichaud historic site at 17 Otho Street was designated by the province of New Brunswick in 1994. On October 9, 2001, the Minister responsible for Culture and Sport Secretariat  designated the site.
