This holiday originates from the tradition, prevalent in several countries, of celebrating the summer solstice by lighting bonfires and performing popular dances. June 24 was officially designated Québec's National Holiday in 1977. Shows and bonfires will take place in several municipalities. Since 1984, the Mouvement national des Québécoises et Québécois (MNQ) has been the national coordinator of this event.
