Fêtes de la Nouvelle France in Quebec City

New France festival.jpgThe streets of Old Quebec City look a bit different this week.  Les Fetes de la Nouvelle-France (Festival of New France) bring to life the early days of the French colony. This year the festival highlights the great changes and technological advances of the period.

Stephan Parent is director of programming for the event. He's the one who has filled the city with sailors, blacksmiths, explorers, and perfumers this week. He spoke with Elizabeth Robertson from Quebec City. (Photo courtesy of Fêtes de la Nouvelle France.)
