Indulge your inner artist!

The charming municipality of Saint-Jean-Port-Joli is known for its creative side and the artistic workshops you can take part in to learn about wood carving, lute-making, pyrography, jewelry making, copper enamel and more! You can even borrow a bike to get around for free or one of the 4 electric bikes available at low cost and discover the village at your own pace.

In addition to discovering the region's must-see museums, such as the Musée maritime du Québec, the Musée de la mémoire vivante, the Musée de la sculpture sur bois des Anciens Canadiens and the Seigneurie des Aulnaies, you may even have the chance to attend a festival, a party or a concert. Culture will be celebrated in a big way this summer! You could see contemporary dance performances in the middle of nature, listen to the sound of sea chanteys or contemplate giant sand or wood sculptures.
