Rain showers from Environnement Canada have cast a shadow over the Saint-Jean-Baptiste celebrations in Quebec, affecting planned events across the province.

In Quebec City, the Grand spectacle of the Fête nationale on the Plains of Abraham is still scheduled for 9 p.m., but the opening act by Zébulon has been canceled, announced the Mouvement national des Québécoises et Québécois.

The musical festivities will go on as planned with a lineup that includes Marie-Annick Lépine, Patrice Michaud, Paul Daraîche, Les Louanges, Ariane Roy, Waahli, Beatrice Deer, Matiu, Laurence Nerbonne, Mitsou, and Galant, tu perds ton temps.

Over in Montréal-Nord, a grand Fête nationale spectacle with Brigitte Boisjoli is set for 8:30 p.m. at Parc Aimé-Léonard.

The Fête nationale event on June 24 at Parc Maisonneuve in Montréal, hosted by Pierre-Yves Lord, will feature performances by Claude Dubois, Roxane Bruneau, Patsy Gallant, Queenie, Daniel Lavoie, Kanen, Éléonore Lagacé, Judi Richards, Fouki, and Le Vent du Nord.

Sherbrooke‘s city center has seen a buzz during the Saint-Jean weekend with concerts at the Théâtre Granada, including a Marjo performance on Monday for the national holiday.

However, some municipalities like L’Assomption have decided to cancel their festivities due to the rainy weather conditions.

Laval has canceled the Qualité Motel show scheduled for 7:15 p.m. Sunday, but the grand Fête nationale spectacle will go on, potentially being rescheduled to accommodate all attendees.
