Les Grands Feux Loto-Québec: dance in the sky at Observatoire de la Capitale

Once again this summer, Observatoire de la Capitale is partnering with Grands Feux Loto-Québec to invite visitors to enjoy spectacular pyromusical fireworks displays from a cozy vantage point at the top of Québec City, sheltered from the wind and weather.

Between August 2 and 23, Les Grands Feux Loto-Québec 2017 offers up six nights of fireworks, each  featuring a different style of dance music. Arrive at Observatoire de la Capitale as early as 9:00 p.m. and take in the summer sunset and the stunning panoramic views from all four sides of the venue. Make a night of it—enjoy the lounge atmosphere and refreshments from the cash bar, savour a selection of ports ($) and treats, and listen music from the Grands Feux musical show.

At 10 p.m. the pyromusical fireworks get underway for 20 dazzling minutes—the high point of the evening. The view from 221 meters up offers sweeping vistas of the Grands Feux so onlookers can take in every sparkle mirrored in the river—an unrivalled perspective on a spectacular performance. Music broadcast live from Quai Paquet and Place des Canotiers, where people will take to the dance floor to showcase the musical themes of the evening. While there, visitors can explore Horizons, a new discovery experience, created by Olivier Dufour and sponsored by La Capitale Financial Group.

There are 100 tickets a night available for $20, tax included. They can be purchased in person at the Observatoire box office on the ground floor of the Marie-Guyart Building at 1037 rue De La Chevrotière. Tickets are good for admission to Observatoire de la Capitale for one night, from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on August 2, 9, 12, 16, 19, or 23. Free for children 12 and under.
