Toe-tappingly traditional (Festival Mémoire et Racines)

Joliette showcases music and rich traditions throughout the Mémoire et Racines (Memory and Roots) festival. Local bars and restaurants dance to the beat of a different drum with free outdoor shows, and the festival reaches a crescendo with weekend performances spread over seven stages at once. Storytelling, dance, kids’ activities, acoustic shows, and big-name concerts all add up to tons of atmosphere, while traditional music also gets in on the act in Parc Saint-Jean-Bosco, a charming park alongside Rivière L’Assomption.
