Original festivals and local secrets

  • Our festivals reflect our originality and creativity, which is why their themes can sometimes be surprising. There’s the Festival de la poutine, Festival de la gourgane celebrating broad beans, Festival de la galette de sarrasin celebrating buckwheat, and Festival du bleuet celebrating blueberries, to name a few. Basically, we like to have fun so much that everything is an excuse to party!

  • With over 150 microbreweries and about 30 hop farms, it’s no surprise that Québec offers around 30 beer-themed festivals. Take advantage of these events to taste new products and the different varieties of beer in a friendly and lively atmosphere. The beer culture is strong in Québec!

  • In addition to restaurants and markets, gourmet road trips are an original way to taste the know-how of our Québec producers while visiting beautiful landscapes. Vine growers, chocolate makers, cider makers, cheese makers, brewers and many other enthusiastic producers open their doors and share the secrets of their trade. Make sure to stock up for your trip home. Happy driving!
