Grands Feux Loto-Québec

On select Wednesdays (16 and 23) and Saturdays (12 and 19) in August 2017, the public is invited to the city’s most beautiful terrace to watch the Grands Feux Loto-Québec fireworks show, free of charge. Overlooking the St. Lawrence River, the governor general’s residence offers an excellent vantage point from which to enjoy this dazzling display.

On these evenings, our guides will be happy to welcome you at 8:30 p.m. to tour the residence at your own pace. At 10:00 p.m., you will be invited to watch the fireworks display from the residence terrace. Because the number of people in attendance each evening is limited to 100, please reserve your space, beginning July 4, online, by filling out the form.

Please note that all of the passes to watch the Grands Feux Loto-Québec from the terrace of the governor general’s residence have been reserved. If you would still like to register for one of the shows, your name will be placed on a waitlist.

For more information about the Grands Feux Loto-Québec, please refer to the official event schedule.

Allocation of spaces:

A maximum of 100 spaces will be available for each evening’s fireworks display. You will be able to reserve spaces for up to four people. Spaces will be allocated as forms are received (first-come, first-served basis). You will then receive a confirmation via email. You will be able to select two possible dates from among the dates listed; however, there is no guarantee that you will receive your first choice.
