In case of rain

  • Do fireworks take place in case of bad weather?

    Fireworks take place rain or shine, so make sure you have adequate clothing in case of rain.

    In case of violent storms, the organisation may cancel some shows on stage for security reasons.

    In the case that the Grands Feux Loto-Québec would have to cancel the pyromusical show for safety reasons, the piece of information will be communicated on the event sites, on our official broadcaster and on social media.

  • Can I bring my umbrella?

    You can bring your umbrella to the site. We count on your curtesy and respect to not obstruct the view of people placed behind you.


  • Is there any parking available on the Quebec City side?

    There are a few parking spaces near Place des Canotiers in Quebec City. See the list of municipal parking lots available in the Old Quebec area for more information.

    In the Quai Paquet area, parking is limited and subject to a fee.

    It is suggested that you use public transit or active transportation to get to the docks.

Reserved seating areas

  • Will I be safe from the rain?

    The seated areas are placed at the best spot to watch the fireworks, but they are not covered.

  • Are the seats assigned?

    Seats in reserved seating sections are general admission. First come, first served.

    It is important to know that reserved chairs are intended for the best possible view of the fireworks show and not for the stage shows.

  • Can I buy tickets for the reserved seating areas on fireworks nights?

    If there are any tickets left, you can buy them online by visiting the ticketing section of the Grands Feux Loto-Québec website on the nights of the fireworks. Sales end at 9.30 pm. However, it is not possible to buy tickets on site.

    Buy my tickets

  • Can I sit my child on my lap during the fireworks in reserved seating areas?

    You can sit your child aged 0-24 months on you during the fireworks show. Children aged of 2 years and over must have a ticket and their own chair.

  • I am a person with reduced mobility, can I be accompanied in the reserved seating areas?

    A section of the site is accessible free of charge for people with reduced mobility and allows only one accompanying person.

    If a person with reduced mobility would like to get a seat in the reserved seating areas, people accompanying this person must get their own tickets.

  • In case of rain, can I get a refund or change my tickets for another day?

    No refunds, changes of time, or transfers to a third party are accepted. The fireworks take place rain or shine. It is therefore the responsibility of the festival goers to adapt their clothing to the weather.

    In case of violent storms, the organisation may cancel some shows on stage or animations for safety reasons. Tickets are not refunded if fireworks still take place.

    However, if the Grands Feux Loto-Québec is forced to cancel the fireworks show for which your ticket was purchased, the amount of your ticket will be automatically refunded.
