Part of the crowd for the first edition of Festibière at the Old Port, which drew 65,000 people last weekend.

They had only a few months to prepare and some potential participants were skeptical. Still, the first edition of Le Festibière de Québec was, by all accounts, a rousing success.

"We expected 25,000 people," said festival programmer Sébastien Huot. "We got 65,000."
