Quebec Festivals

Eastern Canada's Annual Events

All across Quebec, from the northwestern reaches of Rouyn-Noranda to Quebec City, the capital, you're set to discover a wide variety of unique, inviting, and impressive festivals.

For two weeks at the beginning of April in Montréal, you'll have a chance to check out the Vue sur la Relève, an annual festival which celebrates the artistic work of young artists from Quebec who show great promise. Drive in from Dorval and check it out at the Cabaret du Mile-End.

In Gatineau, spring means the annual Canadian Tulip Festival. In early May, you'll have two weeks of varied Tulip celebrations to entertain all members of the family. Whether it's the Vintage Wings Airborne Parade, or the popular Lake of Fire grand finale fire works show, you and the family will not be disappointed.

Summer visitors have a slew of choices, too. Downtown Montreal explodes with laughter at the annual Just For Laughs Festival. With live stand-up comedy, stages performances, street art, and plenty of vendors, you're sure to leave with sore cheeks.

Northwest of Montreal you'll discover Rouyn-Noranda, a charming and quaint city. Visit at the end of August for the Emerging Music Festival in Abitibi-Témiscamingue. You're sure to find a few bands you've never heard of at the Emerging Music Festival.

You can also check out the many winter festivals of Quebec – everything from the all night events of Montréal to the snowy celebrations of Gatineau. Look forward to parties like Winterlude, the Quebec Winter Carnival, the Dorval Winter Carnival, and Montréal High Lights Festival.

Whether you visit in winter, spring, or summer, Quebec is a sterling option for your next Canadian excursion – visit any number of these festivals for a memorable trip.
