Québec City Military Tattoo
August 22, 23 and 24, 2013
March in step as military bands from around the world join forces to delight spectators with their toe-tapping rhythms! Each year, with great pride, the Festival welcomes the world’s largest military music bands and brings them together for a music extravaganza called the Québec City Military Tattoo. You don’t want to miss this Tattoo, a whirling kaleidoscope of music and a dazzling display of pomp and ceremony featuring 700 musicians. The drums and pipes, the drill teams and the mass band performances enthrall spectators.
Four performances of the Military Tattoo will take place this year on Thursday and Friday August 22 and 23 at 7 pm and on Saturday August 24 at 2 P.M. and 7:30 P.M.. Among the countries invited, three international bands will be making their first appearance. This year, bands from Belgium, Chile, France, Germany, Russia and, of course, Canada will be present to please the festival goers.
