Events and Festivals in Quebec

  • Winter Carnival (Jan/Feb): As the cold and snow sets in, the festivities for the biggest winter event begin. The Winter Carnival is the world’s biggest winter event spanning across 17 days. Like all things carnival, this event includes parades, music, performances and a score of winter activities like ice skating.
  • Fête Nationale du Québec (June): Primarily a pagan holiday, the custom of the Fete Nationale du Quebec is to celebrate the summer solstice and light a bonfire to symbolize the peak of the light. On this one day, the entire city takes to the streets and literally parties hard to celebrate the life of John the Baptist as he is believed to be the patron saint of the French Canadians.
  • Fêtes de la Nouvelle-France (August): Taking place since 1997, the Fetes de la Nouvelle-France has been a historically important annual event. For five days, Quebec remembers and celebrates its colonial period; a large part of the celebrations include historical reenactments.
