Festival de cirque Vaudreuil-Dorion: A program with something for everyone

The countdown has begun for the 18th edition of the Festival de cirque Vaudreuil-Dorion (FCVD). With just a few days before the official opening of the site, Rue Jeannotte is beginning its transformation to welcome thousands of festival-goers on June 21st, 22nd and 23rd.

The 2024 edition of the FCVD will offer a wide range of free activities featuring circus arts in the form of workshops or street performances, as well as entertainment for the whole family, thematic areas and participation games. Toddlers, older children and even adults will be sure to find something to enjoy on Rue Jeannotte, including the EuroBungy, the inflatable games, the Ninja Go obstacle course, or the makeup booth to name just a few.

"I want to highlight the incredible work of our teams, who displayed their creativity by coming up with a variety of free and innovative activities to make sure citizens experience a high-quality event. My thoughts also go to all the people who are working on the site during the current heat wave and I wish to express my appreciation for all they do. I truly hope the weather will turn mild for the three days of our festival so that the children can properly celebrate the start of the school holidays," said Mayor Guy Pilon.

As in previous years, young thrill seekers will be excited to come to the amusement park for its rides and variety of skill testing games. In addition, thirteen restaurant offerings will be available on site to delight the taste buds of festival-goers.

The Main Stage

On June 21st, the Main Stage will feature the amazing and colourful Boogie Wonder Band, with DJ Cidoine as the opening act to warm up the crowd with some great disco classics. Also worth noting will be a performance by the Sainte-Madeleine school choir at 6:30 p.m., which, instead of appearing on the square in front of Saint-Michel church like last year, will perform on the Main Stage. On June 22nd, Quebec rapper FouKi will take the stage at the FCVD for the first time. The show will be preceded by Le Band de la Cité, who will present a medley in tribute to Les Cowboys Fringants, who performed in Vaudreuil-Dorion four times between 2010 and 2022.

"We are very proud of our program, and we wish to thank all the financial partners who have made it possible for us to offer this broad program free of charge. Visitors will notice that the Main Stage is no longer in the same place, allowing a larger number of spectators to attend. Citizens are invited to take part in the festivities starting June 21st at 4 p.m.," said Vincent Bastien, Director of Recreation and Culture.

Fête Nationale

On June 21st, 22nd, and 23rd, the site of the FCVD will display the colours of La Fête Nationale. June 23rd will be a day entirely dedicated to the Holiday, featuring only francophone music. Avenue Saint-Charles will be closed to traffic between Jeannotte and Paul-Gérin-Lajoie streets on June 23rd between 7 p.m. and midnight, at the latest.

It will be up to Simon Morin, from the show 2Pierrots, to take centre stage at 8 p.m. to celebrate La Fête Nationale. He will be preceded at 6 p.m. by DJ Kleancut. The performance will be followed at 10 p.m. by the ever-popular fireworks display.

Parking spaces are available on the Cité-des-Jeunes campus as well as on the surrounding streets. Since traffic is commonly still very heavy after the fireworks, citizens are advised to wait while it clears a little, or park in the northern part of the city.
