FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

The Fête du Lac des Nations Promutuel Assurance family festival invites you to take part in its 36th edition from July 18th through July 23rd 2017. Visitors will be treated to about 30 shows of various styles, presented on three stages in Sherbrooke’s Jacques-Cartier park. The event also features les Grands feux de la Fête du Lac des Nations Promutuel assurance, an impressive musical fireworks competition. The event also proposes many activities for the whole family including inflated children’s games, an arts and crafts section as well as the largest mobile amusement park in the Eastern Townships. Treat yourself to some family fun in the heart of the city of Sherbrooke!

Our Festival’s recycling initiative

Recycling is favoured at La Fête du Lac des Nations Promutuel Assurance. Thanks to the city of Sherbrooke’s and Festivals et Événements Verts de l’Estrie (FEVE) support, visitors will be able to contribute to our environment friendly initiative by  using the many recycling and compost bins available everywhere on site. A massive ecological sweeping and sorting operation is also set-up every night on site in order to maximise the salvation of the thousands of plastic containers left on the ground.

Free bicycle parking

As an eco-friendly event, la Fête du Lac des Nations Promutuel Assurance proposes, again this year, a free bicycle parking area for our visitors. Although our volunteers offer surveillance of the sector, be sure to lock your bike in the designated area at all times, as we are not responsible for theft.

STS special offer

The Sherbrooke public transport (STS) offers its public bus service at a special rate of 1$ on all its routes for the whole week during most festival hours. Tuesday July 18s to Friday July 21st from 4 p.m. to midnight, and all day Saturday July 22nd and Sunday July 23rd.
