Music lovers, whatever your favorite genre, there is an event that awaits you this summer in Gaspésie! The ideal excuse for a trip between sea and mountains in our beautiful region.

Country music lovers, get out your cowboy hats and book your weekend in late July, because there are not one, but two Western music festivals in Gaspésie! The Festival Country de Matane will get you dancing in the saloon with country western and folk musicians as well as at outdoor shows. The Festival Western de Bonaventure, meanwhile, will enable you to experience the biggest equestrian event in Eastern Québec with competitions, horse pull, and country rock show. Two events not to be missed!
