The FMG promises a dazzling summer!

News releases | March 9, 2021


There is no way we are going to leave La Baie Park empty for another year! The FMG - Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival will be back in 2021 for Labour Day weekend! We are eager to get back to our community, even if it is in a different format than the one that we normally offer. The 34th edition of the FMG will of course be adapted to the health measures prescribed by Public Health regarding events and gatherings.

The Festival team is busy working on different scenarios to celebrate this occasion and has plenty of surprises in store for you throughout the summer!

"For the FMG corporation, it is essential to regain its raison d'être, to host an event on Labour Day weekend, even if it has to take on a different format than the one we are used to. We will be innovative and adapt our plans to what Public Health will mandate. We are committed to providing a colourful summer for our community and contributing to the cultural vitality of the region," said Sandra Cloutier, Executive Director of the FMG.

As a reminder, in 2020, the organization presented the FMG's Micro Series.

More details on the 2021 edition will follow in the spring!
