Getting Set to Celebrate

March 20, 2007

Ville de Québec Château Frontenac

The 400th anniversary of Quebec City

July 3, 2008 will mark the 400th anniversary of the founding of Quebec City, a milestone reached by very few North American cities.

Quebec City is hard at work preparing the commemorations of this historical event. It will be a time to celebrate past achievements, but also an opportunity to better understand the present, and to look towards the future.

Focusing on the role that Quebec City has long played as a meeting place, the 400th anniversary celebrations will naturally showcase the city’s history. However, they also represent a great opportunity to bring together citizens and stakeholders, to underscore the city’s place on the national and international stage, and to carry out significant projects that will sustain the city and the region’s future development.

This is why the 2008 celebrations should also leave behind a significant legacy for future generations, as was the case in 1908, when the tricentennial celebrations led to the creation of the Battlefield Parks.

Organizers are getting ready to shift preparations into high gear. Our website will inform you on how the plans are shaping up so far. It also allows you to find out more about Quebec City and its history, and about the organization that has been given the mandate to prepare and coordinate these once-in-a-lifetime celebrations.
