The 2022 Loto-Québec Fireworks in Quebec City
The Grand Feux Loto-Québec is the largest firework festival in the world. It has taken place every August since 1985 and attracts around 3 million spectators each year with over 6,000 fireworks launched during each show. During the festival, several pyrotechnic companies from different countries present a half-hour show, combining music and visual impact. Participants compete for gold, silver and bronze trophies.
This festival focuses on a variety of different dance and music styles: country, Latin and social dances, hip-hop and disco. The idea is to combine dance performances on the river quays with pyro-musical performances in the air.
The Grand Feux Loto-Québec shooting platform is located in the middle of the St. Lawrence River, so there are many viewpoints along both banks, and even on the water if you take a boat. The best spots include the grandstands of La Ronde, in the festive setting of the amusement park. The Jacques-Carter Bridge will be closed to traffic and presents an excellent opportunity to attend the show and enjoy the superb views of Montreal and the surrounding area. The Jean-Drapeau metro station is the fastest way to get to the Jacques-Carter bridge area. Wherever you decide to stay, you can’t miss a giant fireworks display just behind the legendary Château Frontenac hotel.
