Events and festivals
In the Outaouais, we have lots of reasons to get together and celebrate. Well party at the drop of a hat: we've built festivals around the fibre arts, sand, the fall colours, beer, tennis, wine, cross-country skiing, French fries well, you get the idea! At Montebello Rock, make the sign of the devil and practise your wicked air guitar solo. Slide, skate, and bite into a BeaverTail pastry at Winterlude and the Snowflake Kingdom. Be dazzled by spectacular fireworks at the Casino du Lac-Leamy Sound of Light, and let your imagination soar at the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival. Mingle with fellow athletes at the Canadian Ski Marathon or the Grand Prix cycliste de Gatineau. In Outaouais, every day is cause to celebrate!
