For an 9th season, the biggest urban lumberjack party will set up camp in Verdun for four days of square dancing, maple tires, and woodcutting. From this March 21st to the 24th, La Cabane Panache et Bois Rond is the guiding beacon for celebrating sugaring time like nowhere else! Festive music, traditional foods revisited, and some lil’ nips to bring colour to your cheeks. Over 100,000 hungry lumberjacks are expected at the biggest and free-est maple festival in Quebec to enjoy a first big breath of springtime air!

If you are impatient waiting for the return of the Cabane, we invite you to admire the photos of the 2018 edition on our Facebook page!

The abundant band has more than 400 in Canada, Louisiana, Europe and the Reunion Island. Their third album Backflips, released in the spring 2017 under the label Grosse Boîte, is an anthology of hymns to the beautiful blackbirds who like to play with trouble as much as an assortment of breaths to keep on the heart beating.

Main Stage

At the corner of Wellington and de l'Église street

The Bleu Jeans Bleu quartet has only one mission: make you happy. It’s with contagious pleasure that they deliver their earrings sometimes pop-rock-disco-soul-caramels. Their successes such as 'J'te gâte all dressed' or 'Vulnérable comme un bébé chat' have earned them a special place in the Quebec landscape, and it’s with enthusiasm that they deliver their performance, cheeks cramps guaranteed. Their new show called PERFECTO promises to mess hair up hairstyling with a disconcerting elegance.

Galaxie
5:00 p.m

Main Stage Quai 5160

At the corner of Wellington and de l'Église street

At the limits of «electro keys» and backed by his fundamental stoner-rock origin, Olivier Langevin and his gang of Galaxie tend to get us out of the winter cold by making us dance. On a less introspective literary note that we know him and a prose always close to the exciting evenings that we can hardly remember, Galaxie will transform the traditional dance floor into a space of release!

Sunday 24 March 2019 - Ben accoté dans barrure avec Le Winston Band et Vilain Pingouin!
Le Winston Band
12:00 p.m

Main Stage Quai 5160

At the corner of Wellington and de l'Église street

One foot in Quebec and the other in Louisiana, the zydeco style of the Winston Band is a strangely authentic bastard. The group borrows from traditional music from from all over the world merging a strong electric note that offers a very current mixed sound. The Winston Band borrow on this long marginalized art that is the zydeco, music of francophone Creoles of Louisiana, and refresh it by mixing it with other styles. Based on the intense combination of the accordion pitons and rubbing, the Winston uses this rock energy that leads the crowd to "act without restraint". Add to that a little of Caribbean sounds and you get the perfect recipe for good times to roll.

Sous la pluie, Salut Salaud, Le Train, … ; all the successes of this legendary Quebec band in one show! Vilain Pingouin public is still composed of teens, and all those who will always keep a little in their heart. Always so appreciated today as at their beginning!

How to get a booth?
