Québec City at its Best

Big Weekend Fun for Québec’s National Holiday

Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day, on June 24th, marks both the start of a long weekend and the start of summer. In and around Québec City, you’ll find lots of ways to celebrate. Here’s how to make the most of the holiday:

Annual Saint-Jean Baptiste Show on the Plains of Abraham

Join the thousands of people heading to the Plains of Abraham for the big June 23 Show celebrating Québec’s culture, French language, and identity. The line‑up includes some veterans as well as hottest young talent of the Québec music scene: Jean-Pierre Ferland, Garou, Mitsou, Daniel Lavoie, Annie Villeneuve, Ludovic Bourgeois, Les soeurs Boulay, Corneille, and much more.

New this year: activities for the whole family will be offered from 3 p.m. on Grande Allée and in front of the Parliament building and from 8 p.m. at Place D'Youville.
