Welcome one and all

Free admission

The Quartier général of the Festival welcomes all festivalgoers!

By day it is a place for encounters, for debating ideas. It’s the local coffee shop, with its homey menu and its little comforts. There is also a Flower Bar, with fresh flower arrangements by one of our florists.

After the shows, the QG becomes the place to be, to meet and greet and to rethink the world. A fun place to drink, eat and maybe even dance! 

Opening hours: May 25 to June 9, everyday from 10 a.m.


FTA Playgrounds

Let’s open our windows at last, to let our thoughts breathe and roam free! The QG hosts most FTA Playgrounds, which are free activities. We’ll also be celebrating as much as possible this year. Check out the programming calendar for the full schedule and to keep an eye out for FTA’s nightime festivities!

Activities at the QG will be held in compliance with the health measures in force.
