Things to do at the Parc

Parc Jean-Drapeau is proud to be associated with Bonsound and Hublot51 to host the first edition of Contre-Courant, a series of intimate concerts performed on various bodies of water in the province of Québec, including Jean-Doré Beach.

Spectators are invited to attend the concerts while they are on their boats or watercrafts, for a unique and unforgettable experience, as they watch artists perform on a floating stage specially designed for the occasion.

Contre-Courant, which emerged from a desire to make a connection between nature, human beings and art, is an alternative streaming platform embracing an eco-responsible thought process to allow people to take back and promote natural environments while joining together in an intimate cultural experience that exists between the artist and public.



Follow the recommendations of the Quebec public health and contact medical resources if you have symptoms related to Covid-19.
