  6. 6. hroughout its colorful history, Montreal has been in turn a French settlement, a British stronghold and a bilingual city. Today it is officially bilingual and proud of its status as the largest French- speaking city in North America and second-largest French-speaking city in the world. In fact, this is a wonderful example of a truly international city where newcomers feel right at home and visitors will always find someone who speaks their language. The founders settled along the banks of the St. Lawrence, the majestic river that brought them here. Today as you tour the Old Port and Old Montréal, you'll find that much of what they and their ancestors built has been lovingly preserved: graceful stone buildings, stately churches and cobblestone streets. The 25th edition of the Montreal International Jazz Festival will be held from June 30th to July 11th 2004. This gigantic summer music celebration features 11 days of non- stop entertainment, from noon to midnight, right in the heart of downtown Montreal. An immense city block is closed to traffic, as right of way is given exclusively to pedestrians, creating a festive and secure spot where more than 350 free concerts take place on 10 outdoor stages–and all this in a peaceful, urban atmosphere! It's the summer celebration par excellence for people of all ages and origins, a cultural breath of fresh air, and a place for incredible discoveries with influences such as jazz, blues, Latin-jazz, Brazilian, Cuban, African, reggae, contemporary and electronic music. Outdoor shows are presented free of charge, from noon to midnight.

  8. 8. uring the 17th and 18th centuries, Quebec City was the center of New France and its enormous territory. At the time, this empire covered all of what is known today as Eastern Canada, the Eastern United States, the Great Lakes and Louisiana, extending from Hudson's Bay in the North to Florida in the South. From its origin as a fur trading post to its present status as Quebec's provincial capital, Quebec City restores and celebrates elements from its past. Standing high on a bluff overlooking the mighty St. Lawrence River, Fairmont Le Château Frontenac is not merely a hotel located in the heart of Old Quebec – it is the heart of Old Quebec. A stay at the château permits you easy walking access to all of the wonderful sites and experiences that Old Quebec has to offer, and a memorable and inspiring stay in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. With architecture, pedestrian streets and fortifications, unique in North America, the Quebec region offers unequalled historical and cultural heritage. A visit to the Plains of Abraham and Old-Quebec will help you discover almost 400 years of history, while its shows, theatres and festivals will put you in a very celebratory mood. Quebec, one of the safest cities in North America, combines ageless European charm, plentiful green space, incredible restaurants, first class accommodations and a festival that knows how to throw out the welcome mat. Every year, the Quebec City Summer Festival pours on the attractions to create a unique atmosphere that draws holiday visitors.

  9. 9. Animating a UNESCO World Heritage treasure like Old Quebec means doing things right. Imagine a city transformed into a giant outdoor stage, where for eleven days, hundreds of performers show off their talents at some ten venues in and around the old city, all within easy walking distance. As your ears thrill to multi-textured sounds from across our small planet, the historic walls of the old town and the majestic St. Lawrence provide a soothing balm for the eyes. Since 1968, the Festival has provided a window on musical trends and traditions from around the globe. A major showcase for planetary culture, this eclectic event provides festival goers an opportunity to explore traditions and trends in world sound, rock, pop, blues, classic and new trends in music. With generous helpings of street performances, there’s literally something for everyone.
