For those staying on the ground this Saturday, there are activities planned for the whole family and more than fifteen kiosks that have already confirmed their presence. Galipeau explained that this year as a trial run, Village en fête will take place on rue Bryson, instead of on rue Baume like in previous years.

Another new attraction this year for children is Touch-a-truck. Multiple service vehicles will be on site including a fire truck, police truck, ambulance and more to allow kids to get an up-close look. Galipeau finished by inviting residents to come out to Village en fête 2024 this Saturday, June 8, on Bryson Street in Fort-Coulonge, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., rain or shine.
