Joliette Christmas Market

In Joliette, we believe in Santa Claus! Every year, downtown Joliette lights up, comes alive, and vibrates to the rhythm of the Holidays. During the month of December, dozens of artisans and local producers set up shop in the artisan village, comprised of charming little houses, to offer a multitude of original products and gifts. It’s also a great opportunity to visit the downtown merchants and celebrate the Holidays in one of the nearby restaurants or bars.

Joliette’s Christmas Market also features spectacular lighting, a visit from Santa Claus in his house, a cultural stroll, and so much more… A festive experience unlike any other!

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!
