Performers and concert organizers Gregory Charles, Jean-Pierre Ferland, Les Soeurs Boulay, Isabelle Boulay, Corneille, Michel Côté, Mitsou and 2Frères (to name a few) gather for a group photo during the afternoon soundcheck before the Fête nationale concert on the Plains of Abraham.

All across the province, Quebecers displayed their blue-and-white flags and highlighted their rich history and culture on June 23 and 24. Through music and art, people celebrated the 184th Fête nationale and the 70th anniversary of the Fleurdelisé (the Quebec flag) at parties organized by the Mouvement national des Québécoises et des Québécois (MNQ).
