Quebec's Summer Festivals

Seasonal Events on Your Summer Visit

Quebec Festivals

Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival

The spring and summer in Quebec is an ideal time to visit. With the chill of winter now in the rear-view, you'll have a breadth fun and attractive things to see and do.

Most notably, spring and summer in Quebec cities like Montreal, Gatineau, and Rouyn-Noranda should yield visits to local and nearby festivals.

Just For Laughs Festival

A staple of the comedy scene in Montreal, be sure to plan for the Just For Laughs Festival held in July. The largest comedy festival in Quebec, Just For Laughs is held at the Place-des-Arts in downtown, and features live stand-up, street art, and even theatre productions.

Drive in from nearby Saint-Jerome and have those ribs tickled. Be sure to visit the Just For Laughs Museum, too.

Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival

West of Montreal, visit Gatineau for the annual Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival held over Labor Day weekend. You and the family can enjoy a leisurely cruise through the sky overlooking Gatineau on a hot air balloon ride, you'll be able to check out the classic car exhibition, and don't miss out on a variety of live performances from top music groups and solo acts.

Brome Fair

In Brome, a pleasant and quaint village southeast of downtown Montreal, you'll discover the Brome Fair, held every year at the end of August. Live music, a demolition derby, rides, games, and plenty of food make the Brome Fair a sterling choice for an event with more of a small-town feel.

 Emerging Music Festival in Abitibi-Témiscamingue

Head north in Quebec and visit Rouyn-Noranda at the end of August for the annual Emerging Music Festival in Abitibi-Témiscamingue. The Emerging Music Festival, also known locally as EMF, seeks to showcase new and not-so-famous music and performers hoping to "foster the discovery of original music." While Rouyn-Noranda might not garner the same kind of attention on par with Montreal, there's still a variety of things to do and see in the area – don't miss out.

Montreal International Reggae Festival

Back in Montreal, a summer visit for music fans should be met with a day at the Montreal International Reggae Festival. Held at the Old Port of Montreal the second weekend in July, the Montreal International Reggae Festival began in 2004 and has been entertaining reggae fans ever since.

With three stages, the three-day festival sees an average of 35,000 guests all in the name of reggae. Some visit from nearby cities like Laval, Dorval, and even Mont-Laurier.
