There’ll be a distinct Québec flavor to the Big Tent at Esplanade Québec—the Captain’s Quarters for the TQSM in Saint-Malo. Come listen to the charming Québec accent and sample some of our joie de vivre. Tap your feet to the beat of music performed by Québec artists. Sample our local beers and delicacies. Under the tent, you’ll find a stage showcasing Québec artists every evening and a bar serving authentic Québec products—it’s enough to make you feel like you’re on the other side of the Atlantic! There’s also a beach complete with sun loungers across from the wharves, not to mention an interior courtyard patio right across from Le Jardin des douves.
And don’t miss: Sail for Wildlife Zone, information booth, and the nautical boutique.
