The restaurant terraces are open, spectacular exhibitions are launched and most tourism businesses have kicked off their summer operations... Québec City is saying hello to summer! Here are our suggestions of activities and events to put on your agenda in June.

Take in Blockbuster Exhibitions

The immersive exhibition Imagine Monet is on display in the Old Port while Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec hosts America. Between Dreams and Realities, a vast artistic and social panorama of American art.

Over at Musée de la civilisation, the fascinating Pompeii exhibition continues all summer.

The exhibitions are sure to be a big draw, so book your tickets in advance online!

Celebrate the Return of Festivals and Major Events

The month of June kicks off the festival season. Don't miss these events :

Pamper Yourself at a Nordic Spa or Wellness Centre

It’s the perfect time to indulge in a revitalizing experience at a wellness center or Nordic spa. From massages to wraps to skin care treatments, you’ll find everything you need for an uplifting experience.

Eat at a Snack Shack

Snack shacks are a venerable French Canadian tradition, and the Québec City area is no exception. Some stick to down-home staples like fries and poutine, while others, like Chez Mag on Île d’Orléans, are all about reinventing old favourites.

Go for a Ride on Eastern Canada’s Biggest Mountain Biking Trail Network

MTBers will find plenty of places to test their skills—and their pedal power—less than an hour outside Québec City. Vallée Bras-du-Nord, Mont-Sainte-Anne, and Empire 47 all have great trails for all levels of rider, including beginners looking to try the sport, while the enduro trails at Sentiers du Moulin are the perfect place to get sendy.

For the first time, the Massif de Charlevoix will be in operation 7 days a week (starting June 18) and will offer nearly twenty kilometres of new trails by the end of summer 2022.
