As a proud partner of the Festival d’été de Québec for over twenty years, the National Battlefields Commission is keenly awaiting the return of festival-goers to the Plains of Abraham next July. The Plains provide the festivities with a central venue where hearts and minds are delighted by outstanding musical events. This summer, the shows will again benefit from the exceptional surroundings of this great historic park in the city’s centre.
Experiencing the shows on the Plains is as magical for the festival-goers as it is for the artists, and we’re happy to see the tradition continue this summer. The Festival d’été de Québec is part of the rich history of a site that, on top of being a historic urban park, has long been a key location for get-togethers. On behalf of the Commission’s entire team, I wish the festival-goers many enjoyable shows and a happy return to the Plains!
– Annie Talbot, Secretary and CEO of the National Battlefields Commission
- The Plains of Abraham have hosted the main stage of the Festival d’été de Québec since 1999. The National Battlefields Commission appreciates this partnership, which has shone a spotlight on the Plains while offering festival-goers a unique setting for major productions.
- The Plains of Abraham are a historic urban park. Each year, 4 million visitors come to enjoy the vast green spaces, the Plains of Abraham Museum, and the organized activities. Since 1908, the National Battlefields Commission, a Canadian government agency, has been preserving and developing this wondrous site that brings so many of us together.
