Bonne Fête nationale à nos amis québecois! ⚜️

An item from one of our fellow Canadian organizations in the Bay Area.


Bonne Saint-Jean à tous!
Bonne Fête nationale à tous les Québécois et Québécoises de la part du programme d’Études canadiennes de l’Université de Californie à Berkeley! Le thématique de cette année est « Tout le Québec à l’Unisson. » Pour savoir plus, visitez la page officielle des festivités ici.
From the origins of the holiday as the Feast of St. John the Baptist in the 19th century to its modern-day incarnation as the “Fête Nationale”, June 24 is a day to celebrate the unique history and culture of the people of Québec. For a fascinating academic account of this history, see this prize-winning book by sociologist Geneviève Zubrzycki. For information about this year’s online festivities, see here.
Bonne Fête à tous!
