Quebec City International Festival of Military Bands is Back for 2012

Feel the vibe!

The best Canadian and foreign military music will meet in Quebec for the Festival international de Musiques militaires de Québec from August 21st to the 26th. This year, in addition to Canadian music, the line up includes Germany, Chile, United States of America, France, and for the first time, Austria.

There are around 30 shows on the program, sparkling activities, and free concerts such as the Welcoming Ceremony and the outdoor concerts. These are sure to bring the community together.

There will also be the popular parade that attracts 80,000 people every year.

Amongst the indoor shows, le Tattoo militaire de Québec is without a doubt the main event of the whole festival. Each year, great military music performers from all around the world join together to deliver a truly international show.

More than 700 musicians and participants share a vast repertoire, allowing anyone to enjoy the richness of military music.

This year will go down in history as there will be a 150th anniversary tribute to the first French-canadian regiment, the Voltigeurs de Québec.

See you there!
