Does Québec City Suffer from Festival Fever?
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.

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?
