Festival d’été de Québec (FEQ) is the musical event of the year in Quebec City, one of the biggest in Canada. When I arrived in the city, everyone I met told me about it, each time with great enthusiasm. “You’ll see, the festival is fun!”, people told me incessantly. Others, however, were more nostalgic, and were remembering about the festival when the festival was free or almost, and looked somewhat like a village feast. It must be said that the festival has changed a lot since its founding in 1968. Since its creation the festival has grown over the years with more and more artists. More renowned also. Today there are hundreds of artists performing on ten stages.

When you arrive in a new country you necessarily notice cultural differences between your new and your home country. And in Quebec, although French is spoken, there are lots of differences with France. In terms of language, for example, we can already see some changes – words and expressions that do not have the same meaning, adaptations in the grammar or in sentence structures, another accent – you may need a little bit of time to get used to it.
Quebec City has the advantage of being close to several ski resorts – perfect for sliding sports lovers. Even if they do not have the sea, which is leading some to swim in the St. Lawrence River (this will give ideas to you Parisian friends perhaps?), Quebecers enjoy the snow through many activities (skiing, snowshoeing, skating…).
As we all know all roads lead to Rome. In Canada they often lead to Quebec. The city is located in the center of the province, which is convenient for those who wish to discover the area. This is why Quebec is often part of stops of a trip to Canada. Its territory is huge and it is easy to get lost in it. Therefore, to help you find your way in this big space, I offer some ideas of travel itineraries.
