About The Festival

The BESIDE Festival was born out of the founders’ wish to make outdoors and adventure activities more accessible, while offering attendees an urban, festive, inclusive and approachable experience.

The Festival, which aspires to be the junction between nature and culture, is focused on discovery through theoretical and practical workshops, conferences, introduction to outdoors activities, a gastronomy experience wishing to put the quebec local ingredients under the spotlight, musical performances and much more. You can camp on site to have a 100% immersive experience. Come take part of the outdoors modernization, responsibly, in order to reintroduce nature in our daily lives and enjoy the well-being provided by outdoors activities.
