Big Weekend Fun for Québec’s National Holiday

Fete nationale

Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day, on June 24th, marks 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.

The 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.

Free Multimedia Show on the Parliament Building

From June 18 to 24, the magnificent Parliament Building is the perfect backdrop for Bleu : Le Québec sous les étoiles, an impressive multimedia show that celebrates Québec's National Day by taking spectators on a journey through Québec's landscapes, language, history and culture.

Please note that the 20-minute projection will take a break on June 23 to give way to celebrations on the Plains of Abraham.

The Mosaïcultures

Be among the first to admire nearly 200 works grouped in 20 majestic paintings created with more than six million plants. Under the theme Once upon a time… the Earth, the exhibition is a hymn to the beauty of life on our planet. The Mosaïcultures are presented for the first time in Québec City on the enchanting site of Parc du Bois-de-Coulonge. From June 24, 2022
