Celebrate la Fête de la St-Jean!
Originally, St-Jean-Baptiste Day was celebrated in the Province of Quebec. Over time, it has become a worldwide event celebrated by French Canadians and, in the United States, by Franco-Americans. Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day, June 24, honors the traditional feast day of the Nativity — or birth — of St. John the Baptist.
In Quebec, the holiday is now celebrated as la Fête Nationale and “la St-Jean” is now mainly a celebration of Francophone culture and history filled with public events, parades, barbeques, picnics and fireworks.
For information about Québec and its New England connections, visit the Délégation du Québec à Boston website.
Celebrate la St-Jean for an entire week with our Friends in Lowell.
