Imagine a village echoing with the cries of ‘’yee-haw’’ for ten days! Every September, 600,000 visitors gather in Saint-Tite, a village with a population of 4,000 that is totally transformed for the occasion. The Festival Western, among the most renowned events of its type in North America, presents a wealth of activities: rodeos (of course!) and also concerts, country dancing, games for the whole family, a big parade and their famous Western-style crowds. For accommodations that match the occasion – something American-style, where space is not a worry – opt for the Comfort Inn Hotel in Trois-Rivières. Get some rest, but remember: the cowboy boots and hat stay on at all times!
