Volunteers entertain festival goers in the streets during last year's edition of the Fête de la Nouvelle France.

A nod to Celtic, Irish and Scottish history during the New France era is one of the six main differences during this year's edition of the Fête de la Nouvelle France SAQ.

The festival's General Director, André Parent, says after 13 editions, the festival is turning the page to include more of the history during the 1608 to 1760 period.
