Throughout the summers of Québec, hardly a weekend goes by without a festival to attend... the Grand Prix, Montreal Fringe, a travel and outdoor festival in Québec city, and a dance festival in Trois Rivières, to name a few.
Antoine Robitaille of Le Devoir cautions that the Plains of Abrama are becoming a permanent Woodstock!
Is it possible to have gone overboard with our enthusiam for festivals? And furthermore, are festivals really an effective way to boost tourism?
Listen below to Jeanette's conversation with Antoine and let us know what you think - is Québec in danger of festival fever? Do you travel to other cities for the festivals or special events?
