On June 23rd and 24th, 2017, Quebec's National Day will be celebrated in Paris and Saint-Malo.

Quebec's Government Office in Paris and the 6th arrondissement of Paris organize a big popular festival to celebrate Quebec's National Day in Paris. All Quebecers and friends of Quebec are invited to take part in the party which will take place on the streets.

The day will start with a flag-raising ceremony along with a concert, which will include drumming and brass instruments from La Nouvelle France.

Jean-Guy Déraspe, a traditional singer-songwriter and musician from Quebec who currently resides in France, will perform at the concert. The program also encompasses other musical animations, culinary specialties and drinks typical from Quebec.

The Quebec House also launched an event celebrating Quebec's National Day on June 24th, 2017 in Saint-Malo. Along with tastings of products from Quebec, games will be organized to test the knowledge of visitors about the History of Quebec in order to enable them to learn from it.
