“L’International des Feux Loto-Québec attracts over three million people annually, making it one of Quebec’s most highly attended events,” says La Ronde park president, Janine Durette. “La Ronde is honoured to be the host site for this long-standing tradition beloved by Montrealers and tourists alike.”


Though the specific themes have yet to be announced, a variety of countries will be represented by some of the greatest pyrotechnic artists from around the world.

Tickets for in-park views of the fireworks festival have yet to go on sale but Montrealers already know the best places to watch the summertime festival is on the grass, or the bridge, for free (don’t tell La Ronde).
