La Virée Festival in Carleton:
An immersion in Québec’s living heritage

Get a feel of the cultural identity of Gaspésie, Acadia and Québec during the La Virée Festival in Carleton-sur-Mer, Québec.

For the past 17 years, La Virée Festival has showcased and promoted cultural practices stemming from Québec traditions, including an evening of traditional folk dancing, song and music, a public market featuring some 60 Gaspésie artisans and producers, evening storytelling, a tent of bygone trades, many workshops to bring artists and festival goers together, a program for a young audience, etc. You can often enjoy the benefits of an Indian summer in the heart of the Baie-des-Chaleurs and experience La Virée Festival in a stunning blaze of fall colours, between mountain and sea!

La Virée Festival is an intergenerational event par excellence and somewhat like a people’s university where it’s possible to listen to and chat with tradition bearers from the region and elsewhere, leading artists, who are all key to helping our cultural heritage thrive.
