Who are we?

Respectively founded in 1975 and 1992, Festivals et Événements Québec (FEQ) and the Société des Attractions Touristiques du Québec (SATQ) are two non-profit organizations working in the leisure and tourism industries. Through a wide range of varied and adapted services, the FEQ and the SATQ wish to offer support to the organizations in their sector so they can develop quality products and services. The FEQ and the SATQ also offer highly attractive promotional opportunities in successful venues such as the Québec Vacation Guide and Close to 500 festivals, events, attractions and tourist corporations expressed their confidence in us by joining the ranks of our associations.


To bring together Quebec festivals, events and tourist attractions, to promote them, to represent them with various authorities, and to offer services that enhance their development.

Organizational vision
