Under the unifying theme "games and entertainment", the 11th edition of the New France Festival will take place from August 1 to 5, 2007. The kick-off will be on Wednesday, August 1 with a large opening parade in Old QuÃ©bec. Giants and other oversized characters will be on the streets. The pilgrimage From One Basilica to the Other, held on August 5, is a walk along Route de la Nouvelle-France, the colony's first thoroughfare inaugurated in 1737.
For five days, over 1,000 artistic performances will be offered to festival-goers on eleven sites throughout Old QuÃ©bec. At times historical, theatrical, musical or simply entertaining… these shows will delight one and all and will encourage the public to participate. Visit the Festival's website for more information.
