The New France Festival (also known in French as Fêtes de la Nouvelle-France) are held in Quebec City and offer musical performances, dance and colorful costumed parades. Theater plays are also presented and a large costumed ball reminds participants of the past of the province, transporting them in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
