We’re almost there!

The festival starts on June 28 (June 27 if you’re registered for a course).

Here’s some practical information to help you prepare for your visit…

First of all, please note that the Caisse Desjardins ATM has closed. Most merchants will be equipped with card payment terminals. Bars and the on-site ticket office also have payment terminals. However, if you’d like to carry cash with you, remember to visit the ticket office before you arrive in Saint-Antoine-sur-Richelieu.
