Festival Western de St-Tite

The Festival Western de St-Tite – what a wonderful adventure! Who could have imagined that this little municipality in the Mauricie region would experience an exponential growth in population size every September? A total transformation: the whole town becomes western! With its breathtaking professional rodeos, music shows, country dancing classes, and the prevailing festive atmosphere, the event, which began in 1968, has become a standard-setter when it comes to rodeos and major events. In fact, it has become the largest country-western-themed attraction in Eastern Canada. Hats off!
