  • A word from the Minister

High spirits and Irish reels are the order of the day when the St. Patrick’s Day Parade winds its way through our fair metropolis! This event, now a favourite in the Capitale-Nationale region, brings together people of all ages, from nine to ninety.

With its infectious music, its passion for politics and its distinctive architecture, food and literature, Irish culture has made a lasting contribution to Québec heritage, one that is now part of the region’s identity. So we are delighted to host this 9th St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Québec City.

This is a fabulous opportunity for people everywhere to come celebrate and pay tribute to a part of our history that we can be truly proud of!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Sébastien Proulx
Minister of Education, Recreation and Sports
