Discover the Festival des arts de Mascouche (Mascouche Arts Festival), one of the most important exhibition-competitions in the Lanaudière region. Featuring some 70 emerging and professional visual artists, the festival also highlights the work of a guest artist in a dedicated exhibition.

In addition to a variety of learning activities and entertainment centred around visual arts, the event features both outdoor venues and indoor ones, sheltered from the whims of Mother Nature. From September 2 to 4, 2023, meet creators of all styles during this delightful festival!

Discover the magnificent work of artist Annabelle Marquis

The festival is thrilled to present a selection of nearly 20 pieces by this remarkable artist, which will be on display throughout the event at the small pavilion in Parc du Grand-Coteau. Her paintings have previously been exhibited in Montreal, New York, Miami, Hong Kong, Singapore and Europe, where she has won several awards. Using acrylics and collage techniques, Marquis creates artwork with an in-depth narrative, delighting watchful viewers who indulge in the experience as they take in the movement and playfulness of her brightly coloured works. Get your tickets now for your chance to witness this ode to joie de vivre!

Create artistic badges with your family

On Saturday, September 2, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., unleash your inner artist and express your creativity at Parc du Grand-Coteau. The whole family is invited to join artist Karine Chartrand for a free workshop during which you’ll artfully decorate small badges that you can then wear proudly or offer as gifts. It’s a great activity for kids and parents alike!

Marvel at Lorie Hamel’s body art creations

Body art is a true passion for this highly talented make-up artist, whose creations are unique and often poetic images that appear to come alive. During your visit to the festival, stop by during the afternoon of September 2 to see her at work and watch as her models undergo a complete metamorphosis. Her amazing talent will leave you speechless!
