Tempt your taste buds at the distillery

Calling all fans of spirits, grab your glasses! The Distillerie du St. Laurent invites you to its new location, which will open this summer, right next to the Pointe-au-Père Maritime Historic Site. It’s a place where you can learn more about the production of the spirits for which the brand is famous, as well as whisky and acerum, a maple brandy. New features this year include a salt air permeable aging cellar, a café-bar with a patio overlooking the river, a tasting room and a shop on site. Don't miss the very first edition of the Festival des Distilleries de l'Est-du-Québec, which will take place on August 27, 2022!

Admire the acrobats at the Cirque de la Pointe-Sèche

From July 6 to September 4, 2022, attend the new show, Charcoal, by Cirque de la Pointe-Sèche, the first outdoor circus in eastern Quebec. Presented on a stage perfectly integrated into the natural environment of Kamouraska, this new creation promises an impressive parade of skills, pirouettes and surrealism that will please everyone. Take the opportunity to spend the night on site: unusual cabins are perched on the side of a mountain, a perfect reflection of the creativity and prowess of circus life.

Attend the biggest music festival east of Québec City!

The Grandes Fêtes TELUS are back! This quintessential summer tradition in Rimouski will offer festival-goers from the region and abroad a great lineup of big musical stars and emerging artists, performing on stage at Beauséjour Park. Among the headliners of the 2022 edition – taking place from August 4 to 7 – will be The Chainsmokers, The Offspring, Les Cowboys Fringants, Flo Rida and more. You won’t want to miss it!
