A word from the Minister





Your government is very proud to support the Carleton-sur-Mer La Virée Festival, an inter-generational event that allows you to learn more about the richness of Gaspésie, Acadia and Québec heritage. From dance to traditional music, festival-goers will discover a wide range of cultural heritage practices. These festivities help highlight Gaspésie while promoting its economic drive and diversifying its tourist offering.


I invite visitors to take advantage of their stay to discover the various tourist attractions in this beautiful region. You will be charmed by the spectacular landscapes and the warmth of the people of Gaspé.


Enjoy the festivities!


Minister of Tourism
