Message from the ministers

Chantal RouleauIsabelle Charest

The gouvernement du Québec is proud to support the very first edition of the BESIDE Festival. This unique event invites the public to participate in cultural and nature activities at Parc national des ÎlesdeBoucherville.

The event’s dual purpose makes it unique, as it reunites specialists from different outdoor disciplines and various artists. Festival-goers will have the chance to try their hand at several activities and enjoy exciting outdoor shows and concerts. This innovative concept, which showcases an exceptional natural site surrounded by the St. Lawrence River, will contribute to the Metropolitan area’s status as a tourism destination of choice.
