Fête des Chants de Marins

Summer in Quebec 2018  Fête des Chants de Marins

Discover  local and international maritime culture !
Sea shanties (chants de marins) are songs that were originally passed on orally and  sung by the sailors to help with manoeuvers on the old sailing ships. Sea shanties are now considered part of our maritime heritage. Hardship and courage could be found in the refrains inspired by the sailors’ daily chores and their shared passion for the sea. 
The Fête des chants de marins was born in an area known for its maritime heritage and for being the birthplace of a long line of sailors and coastal traders. The festival takes
place on the shores of the Saint Lawrence River where schooners were built, fishermen worked and the river was the only link to the continent.
Under the theme «D’un océan à l’autre», singers, artisans, troubadours and sailors from here and abroad share different aspects of our maritime culture and heritage with the public. Besides sea shanties, the most important maritime festival of eastern Canada offers an array of other activities: workshops, conferences, children’s program, nautical activities and much more.
Come on the shores of the Saint Lawrence River in Saint-Jean Port-Joli for the 19th edition of the event from the 16th to the 20th of August 2017!
