Boating Festival

From July 7 to 9, Parks Canada is proud to host the Saint-Paul-de-l’Île-aux-Noix Boating Festival (only in French) at the Fort Lennox National Historic Site, organized in collaboration with the municipality.

IMPORTANT: For the duration of the festival, visitors must purchase the $12 button (free for children 5 years and younger) to gain access to the festival site from July 8 to 10. With this entry fee, visitors can benefit from all the activities proposed by the municipality on the wharf of the Fort Lennox National Historic Site and by Parks Canada on Île aux Noix where the fortification is located.

Visitors must park their vehicles in one of the municipality's five incentive parking lots. Shuttle services to the Fort Lennox National Historic Site and to the festival site will be provided.

On the program: a large site set up on land (Parks Canada wharf) with a food-service area, a craftsmen area, a space for families with numerous demonstrations, food trucks and bar services, festive evenings, free tries on a canoe, kayak, paddleboard, and pedal boat, shuttles every 15 minutes to visit Fort Lennox and benefit from the variety of activities and challenges proposed by Parks Canada Heritage Presenters.
