The Fête Nationale du Québec celebrations

The Fête Nationale du Québec celebrations

For the first time since its first occupation 145 years ago, the Fête Nationale du Québec celebrations are back on the Parc Jean-Drapeau site, in the new Espace 67 amphitheatre. Quebecers are invited to come to the festivities and immerse themselves in a world of traditions at an enjoyable event that blends history and music.

Starting at noon, there will be street food trucks on site so that people attending the event can appease their appetite. There will also be plenty of fun activities for the kids. Arts, songs and special performances will all be part of the celebrations.

The Montréal show will be hosted for the third straight year by the popular Québec actor and film producer Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge.
