A Blainville celebration

The City of Blainville is presenting the 35th edition of Blainville en fête in its full format on Saturday, August 20 at the Equestrian Park. Blainville citizens will be able to celebrate once more after 2 years of pandemic restrictions. They will be able to see Corneille and his guests : Renee Wilkin, Dashny Jules, Jonas Tomalty, as well as Julien Charbonneau and Sarah-Maude Desgagné from the most recent version of Star Académie.

Family fun

The Blainville en fête festivities will begin at 10 a.m. with inflatable games, face painting for children and various fun activities. Starting at 11 a.m., Atchoum will present his show on the secondary stage. Véronique has been interested in comedy and music since a young age. Véronique Gagné embodies Atchoum full time and travels across Quebec, accompanied by her rock musicians. Atchoum is also known for its songbooks, its video capsules, its program Tordus broadcast on the Web and on TV, its five albums and its four films, its nominations at the ADISQ gala, its association with the Parc Mille Lieux from the hill, and more. She will be followed by Bill Bestiole at 2 p.m.

Starting at 7:30 p.m., the winners of the Blainville en chansons will perform on the main stage. It will be a great opportunity to discover the fabulous talents of the region.

New for the 35th

To mark the 35th anniversary of Blainville en fête, the traditional fireworks will be accompanied this year by a show of 100 luminous drones for about ten minutes. This is a show conceptualized especially for the City of Blainville. Drone fireworks are the new craze worldwide with exceptional capabilities in delivering sky messages that fireworks cannot! Blainville en fête is able to support these activities because of the support of generous partners who make it possible, year after year, to carry out an event of this magnitude: Stablex, Desjardins Caisse de l’Envolée, CIME FM, Groupe JCL, IGA Extra Famille Girard, as well as many other collaborators.
