Québec City Military Tattoo

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.

As mentioned on our home page, the 2014 Military Tattoo will not take place. However, the Festival's Board of Directors will make every effort to hold the event in 2015. To go forward, the Festival asks for clear commitments from its different partners and sponsors, including the federal government.
