Festivals where you can camp in Quebec

Do you love camping and festivals? Combine both of them at once. Across the province of Quebec, plenty of festivals and events offer camping on site or nearby for festival-goers. Let yourself be entranced by the atmosphere at a music festival, agricultural fair or country-western event before sleeping under the stars. Bring your tent or folding camper or drive up in an RV and get ready to camp and celebrate!
