Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day - Celebrate Canada days 2017

Canada 150

The cultural pride and rich heritage of Canada’s Francophones are expressed in the colourful parades and lively festivities that mark Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day, Fête nationale du Québec et de la Francophonie canadienne, which takes place on June 24. Francophones and Francophiles across the country celebrate Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day—especially in Quebec, where June 24 has been officially declared the National Holiday.

This year, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation, Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day will be bigger than ever before! In addition to the many festivities set to take place in various communities from coast to coast, major performances showcasing Francophone and Francophile artists from across the country will be held in six Canadian cities. 

Join the party, and discover Francophone culture and its contribution to our society!
