This year, teams from Ukraine, Belgium, Portugal, Canada, the United States, and Finland will face off in a dazzling display of creativity. An opening show with a “Boy & Girl Bands” theme and a closing Metallica tribute show round out this explosive experience.
Québec’s new music festival is back at the beach for a second year, with a supremely vibey lineup. There will be swimming, beach sports, great food and, of course, 16 performances by Indie musicians rocking out on two stages for some 20,000 festivalgoers.
Tickets are sold out this year, so be sure to catch the wave next year! For more festival news, see the Cigale website.
4. See a memorable boxing match

In one of the most important fights in recent years, Russian-Canadian Artur Beterbiev will defend his unified WBC, WBO, and IBF light-heavyweight title against Englishman Callum Smith. All of North America will be glued to the screen for this epic match. Contenders Christian Mbilli, Simon Kean, Wilkens Mathieu, and Leïla Beaudoin will also have their time in the ring at this event, which Videotron is proud to sponsor. Come support Québec boxers and light up the Videotron Centre with family and friends!
Now in its 24th year, comedy festival ComediHa! Fest is back for another round of non-stop laughs in Québec City.
