Saint-Jean-Baptiste is a legendary holiday in Quebec! This historical holiday deserves an authentic and fun touch, while being the perfect reason to spend time with the ones you love! Don’t think too hard this year, because we’d like to make your job easier by providing 5 fun ideas for a memorable (and sometimes traditional) Saint-Jean-Baptiste!
- Make a bonfire!
The Saint-Jean-Baptiste is the perfect holiday for a bonfire with people you love. If space and security are fine, you can make one in your backyard. Bring your guitar, your favorite songs and best voices! If you can’t make it home, see with events and parks near you.
- Traditional cuisine
Saint-Jean-Baptiste and Quebec go hand in hand, and boy oh boy, do Quebeckers love to eat! Why don’t you organize a special evening with traditional french canadian meals? Let’s start with microbreweries, home made poutine, salads, chicken and even more! Don’t be afraid to mix different worldwide flavors.
- Eat in a Belle Province restaurant
Dare to think outside the box; it’s the perfect occasion! The restaurant’s name fits the traditional meal for this holiday. What’s better than a greasy and cheesy poutine?
- Music, music, music!
Many great towns like Montreal, Laval, Quebec or Gatineau organize outside activities for the Saint-Jean-Baptiste. There is food, music and lots of fun! It’s perfect for any family get together.
- Quality family time
Even if this day is the greatest excuse to party, it’s also the greatest day for family time. You can relax and take it easy with music, family and food!
