Word from the Minister





The Government of Québec is proud to partner with the Festival La Virée, a unifying event that brings the beautiful city of Carleton-sur-Mer to life in the middle of fall and generates many tourism benefits. Its festive and diverse program helps not only to shine a light on the Gaspésie region for all of Québec to see and secure its position among leading cultural and tourism destinations, but also to prosper.


With a focus on discovering and highlighting Québec traditions, this festival features a number of original activities that both young and old alike will enjoy. It is therefore an event that should not be missed by anyone who seeks to discover the many charms of the Gaspésie region and get a better appreciation of the warmth and hospitality of its inhabitants and also the beauty of its landscapes.


Enjoy the Festival!
