Something unique in Shawinigan

From July 26 to 28, 2019, the Tribal Fest and the Soirée des Brasseurs beer festival will be joining forces to produce a major event highlighting the city of Shawinigan and everything it’s about: the flavours, nature, urban style and daring attitude. This partnership was formed to showcase these two flagship events that have a strong sense of identity and connection to their location and to inspire a feeling of tribalism and fraternity in festival-goers. The site will be free to access, and visitors will get to try out freestyle nature and street sports, taste brews and local gourmet products and enjoy the music and festive atmosphere.

Go on a virtual 5D experience

Until March 31, 2019, the Grévin Museum is hosting the first virtual 5D experience for groups in Montreal. This memorable multisensory activity lasting 3 minutes and 40 seconds immerses spectators in a stereoscopic 3D world that reproduces the last race of the movie Racetime. Get behind the controls of a sledge, put on your 3D glasses and see what it’s like to combine winter fun and cutting-edge technology.

Striving to encourage artistic creation and innovation, the festival will be awarding a new prize this year for the Best Interactive Work, one of seven awards that will be handed out at the closing ceremony of this 37th edition.
