Hi BedandBreakfastFan43,

Welcome to the QUEBEC CITY TRAVEL FORUM

Quebec City is a wonderful Destination year-round… but especially so in the Summertime when the city comes alive with so many great festivals, street performers and special events etc.

For your research and trip planning for Quebec City you’ll want to start with the Official Tourism Website…

Quebec City Tourism = www.quebecregion.com

They have a great section entitled Events… where you plug in your dates and see what is upcoming for any timeframe.

Example = quebecregion.com/en/…

*NOTE – Dates on this website are written in the Canadian format of Day/Month/Year

Still kind of early for all events for Summer 2012 to be listed... so the website will be on-going project... you might want to check back from time-to-time

Some of the more popular annual events in June and July include the Quebec City Summertime Festival – St Jean Baptiste Day (June 24th) - Loto Quebec International Fireworks Competition

And the Rendez-vous Naval de Quebec will be happening again in mid-June in 2012 ( http://rendezvousnaval.com/en/home )

Hope this is helpful,

Cheers!

My suggestion: schedule your visit around the big Festival d'été / Summer Festival, July 5-15 2012. www.infofestival.com . Programmation is usually published in May. In my opinion, it's the time of the year where Québec City is the prettiest. Be warned about eventual late booking: this year the festival will take place at the same time as the first World Convention on French language ~ meaning thousands of extra tourists at the height of tourist season, so plan accordingly!
