Saint-Sacrement Harvest Festival celebrates neighbourhood

Many a Saint-Sacrement child metamorphosed into their favourite creature during the festival.

Chattering children, clinking coins, wind rustling tablecloths and corn tassels are signature sounds. Steaming pots of that same corn, freshly boiled, sit gleaming golden right alongside vendors selling everything from clothing to housewares and antiques.

Seemingly the scene of a typical weekend market, it is the location that sets this event apart from most others we see in Quebec City.
