Most of the New France Festival Organizers dressed in period costumes to launch this year’s program of activities.

Get your tricorn hat and your quilted bonnet ready. “You are invited to dive into history and live to the rhythm of lifestyles in New France!” said Benoît Bernier, president of the Fêtes de la Nouvelle-France / New France Festival. This year’s festivities will take place in Quebec City’s Quartier Petit Champlain and Place Royale from August 9 to 13.
