THE happening to reconnect with nature: BESIDE Festival

Updated 2 mai 2019

Born from the desire to reconnect the human with nature and the certainty that we do not have to go far to reinvent it in its daily life, the BESIDE Festival is the event not to be missed this summer.






We are waiting for you!

From June 14 to 16, 2019, we invite you to visit the Îles-de-Boucherville National Park to discover, touch, taste and explore in a festive atmosphere. From sunrise in SUP to a jam session around the campfire, through a photo workshop, a conference of a great explorer and a concert of Elisapie at sunset - that's a day at the Festival BESIDE .

Choose from a multitude of experiences to reconnect with your way. You can even camp on the island. For its first edition, the BESIDE Festival gives way to the audacity and pleasure that arise at the intersection of nature and culture. Because nature is the outdoors, but it's also agriculture, fishing, art, science, culture, architecture and more.

The BESIDE Festival is also:

  • The right of access to the Îles-de-Boucherville National Park and its 5 km2 of nature to explore freely.
  • Free access for children under 12 years old.
  • A campsite on the islands
  • The discovery of the tourism offer of the 11 nations and the 55 native communities of Quebec.
  • Screenings to relax in the open air and be inspired by documentaries BESIDE.
  • Demonstrations by Les Forges de Montréal.
  • An entertaining and relaxing village with an area of ??exhibitors and discoveries, street food trucks, a bar and hammocks.
  • A camp area for children where 5 to 12 years old can take a break from parents and play in nature for half a day of discoveries.
