In a great celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation, a fleet of 40 tall ships will be sailing Canadian waters. They'll be putting into host ports along the way, giving thousands of people in Québec, Ontario and the Maritimes the chance to admire these cathedrals of high seas.
Marking the point of the celebrations, the spotlight will be on Québec City as the entire fleet of 40 tall ships and 3,000 crew members convene here. There will be ship tours, thematic activities on the docks and a host of other free family activities for the general public.

What not to miss :

Veles e Vents, an explosive and fairy-like spectacle of the Catalan company Xarxa Teatre. July 19 and July 21 at 9:00 pm at the Agora of the Port of Québec.

Parade of the crews in the streets of Quebec City. 3,000 sailors will use a 1,5 km urban circuit with the support of musicians, characters and other entertainers. July 20 at 2:00 pm.

A grandiose firework display, in collaboration with the Grands Feux LotoQuébec, in the middle of the river. July 22 at 10:00 pm.
