Québec City
Like no other

Québec City is a Canadian destination like no other.

Imagine, you’re sitting in a plenary room, listening to an expert researcher presenting his latest findings. The session is over and you rush to the riverbank to watch athletes paddle through the ice, jumping in and out of their canoe to reach the finish line. As a backdrop, a majestic building proudly sits atop a cape, while the crowd below cheers enthusiastically.

A few hours later, you’re enjoying an evening in an historical venue, surrounded by your fellow event participants. You’re eating a delightful meal, full of sumptuous flavors, a truly inspired affair. Your jaw drops when you see the violinist perform skyjacked and upside down right above your head.

This memorable event is unlike any other you have ever experienced, in a city like no other in North America. Québec City is unique in its history, but also in its joie de vivre. Québec City is like no other.

The Painchaud Family

For the Painchauds, music is a family affair. Patrice, Kattialine, and Dominic Painchaud were initiated into music by their parents while still in diapers. All mastered multiple instruments, their mother schooling them in classical works and technique. Dad was in the meantime teaching them the rudiments of traditional music.

At age three, Patrice entered the Québec Conservatory. Three years later he made his solo debut with Orchestre symphonique de Québec. As adults, the brothers and sister are established in the event industry, where they’ve performed for thirty years under the Painchaud Productions moniker. Today they’re local musical royalty with no worlds left to conquer. Their seemingly infinite bag of tricks keeps their audiences gasping—over a thousand pieces of music with plenty of pop, traditional, classical, and rock, all of it spiced with comic audience patter and one-of-a-kind stunts including “Jet Guitar,” “Fired-Up Bow,” handstand tap-dancing, piano six hands, and lots more.

The Painchauds are truly a force of nature, delivering Québec City–flavoured fun locally or in all their extensive travels. Their story is woven into the DNA of the city's event industry.

The Tuna Story

Last fall on the night of September 13, Heinrich Meesen, chef at George V, Caterers, set to sea with his faithful acolytes Guillaume Dumas and Francis Lévesque in quest of the mighty Atlantic bluefin tuna. For seven hours they plied the waters off the Gaspé coast aboard the Sun Catcher. Twice their hooks were taken, and twice their quarry fought free. A hard business they had in store. And before long, the line stretched taut once again. The trio hove to, fighting to drag the monster to the surface. The tide of battle turned and turned again. On and on they struggled, until at last they could see the great bullet head emerging from the deeps. And then disaster. The line broke, and their finny foe was gone. They were heartbroken. Yet despite their three failures, none of them was prepared to return home empty-handed. They sailed on and as the final stroke of midnight died out across the waves, a 714-pound tuna came to call.

This is the tuna that has journeyed from sea to table, soon to be served to banquet guests at the Voltigeurs de Québec Armoury. It’s an event-industry experience you’ll only find in Québec City, where locally sourced freshness goes hand in hand with the finest in fine dining.
