Light shows

Spotlight on Québec!

Thanks to the creativity of Québecers and their expertise recognized worldwide in the field of multimedia, Québec comes alight at night. Throughout the province, gardens, forests, buildings and other architectural elements shine with impressive illuminations and light and digital projections. Various illuminated pathways along the shoreline, in the heart of the forest or inside a basilica include a sound component that creates an immersive experience. Imagined by Moment Factory, the multimedia entertainment studio of international fame, they display the wealth of natural landscapes and religious heritage of Québec, and will transport you into an uncommon multisensorial universe. Other colourful installations in the heart of the cities, including Montréal en Histoires - Cité Mémoire ‒ the longest projection path in the world – use a live connectivity concept.

Take advantage of the legacy of Montréal’s 375th anniversary, celebrated in 2017, and see many of the city’s emblematic features illuminated. Some will remain, such as the Jacques-Cartier bridge, with a lighted urban installation beating to the digital pulse of the metropolis.
