Quick facts

  • Bandstand fans had to complete a ballot online or at the Pavilion (near the Bandstand) indicating their favorite show of the season. From among the ballots received, the Commission held a draw of one family pass for four, giving access to summer activities at the Plains of Abraham. Congratulations to the winner, Mrs. Nathalie Duclos, who will be able to visit the Battles 1759-1760, Identities and Attention! exhibitions, and take the guided tour aboard Abraham’s Bus.

  • For 26 years, the magnificent stage of the Edwin-Bélanger Bandstand located at the heart of the Plains of Abraham a stone’s throw from Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec has been presenting a standout program of free concerts Thursday to Sunday, from June to August, in a one-of-a-kind setting and exceptional natural decor. Inaugurated in 1993, the Edwin-Bélanger Bandstand was named after a major figure in the history of music in Québec. Captain Edwin Bélanger, a violinist, viola player, conductor, arranger, composer and teacher, contributed greatly to the growth of Québec City’s musical scene. After a long-standing and rewarding career, he passed away on January 14, 2005 at the age of 94. Many musicians and music lovers will treasure lasting memories of this great man who left his mark on Québec City’s musical and cultural landscape.
