Québec City is one of the oldest European settlements in North America. The international fleet will arrive in this historic port from the St Lawrence River, as part of Rendez-Vous 2017.
Québec is recognised as a world heritage site by UNESCO, and it’s the perfect location for a celebration that people will remember for a long time. Don’t miss this chance to experience the undeniable charm, unique culture and urban savoir-faire that can only come from this captivating French capital.
During the event, the city will welcome the spectacular Tall Ships fleet and play host to magnificent celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation. We expect thousands of visitors from around the world to enjoy spectacular fireworks, colourful crew parades, and street artist performances.
Outside of the festivities, Québec acts as a living museum of 17th- and 18th-century cobblestone streets, seamlessly integrated with its modern cultural spirit and character. There’s more than a touch of old Europe to this American neighbour, which makes it a truly unforgettable experience for visitors.
