A colorful, human campaign 

With the launch of this summer’s program, Les Grands Feux also revealed the new colors and “faces” that mark an evolution in its brand image. Keen to showcase the complete offering developed over the last few years, Les Grands Feux team wanted to depict its local culinary offering and its desire to democratize digital art.

Vibrant and inclusive, the new campaign also shows that Les Grands Feux is for everyone! Young and old, people from Gatineau, the Outaouais, Ontario and elsewhere in Canada or the world, are invited to experience a unique and collective moment of wonder, which brings us all back to our inner child.

Les Grands Feux du Casino Lac-Leamy continues to burn bright for the Gîte Ami cause

We invite festival-goers to contribute to our chouchou cause by making a donation via the online ticketing service when purchasing their tickets for Les Grands Feux du Casino Lac-Leamy. We’re proud to support the Gîte Ami, an organization dedicated to the social reintegration of homeless people in the Outaouais region, and to add this contribution to our active measures in the area of sustainable development, a key principle in all our actions.

True to its proactive approach to eco-responsibility and aware of the impact of the events and pyrotechnics industry, Les Grands Feux du Casino Lac-Leamy continues its efforts to limit the event’s footprint. As has been the case for several years, the “no single-use plastic” rule continues to apply throughout the site. 

In addition, Les Grands Feux have agreed on the following parameters to reduce the impact of the shows, in collaboration with their loyal partner, Royal Pyrotechnie, producer of the shows :  

  • Reducing the maximum quantity of explosive material per show
  • Increased integration of ecofriendly pyrotechnics in each show, from the current threshold of 20 % to 25 % for 2024
  • Integration of 2 blocks of 60 seconds with a greatly reduced load (maximum of 40 NEQ), reducing show concentration
  • Continued study of data on the environmental impact of our shows

Reserved seating, general admission tickets, passports and corporate and tourist packages are available at http://feux.qc.ca.


“We’re proud of all the work we’ve put in over the last few months to offer a rich, vibrant and diverse program. People come to Les Grands Feux to see the sky light up, and can now enjoy an amazing variety of activities to enrich their experience. 

Thanks to the support of our partners and the creativity of our internal and external teams, I’m confident that people will be amazed once again this summer. We’re delighted to be a torchbearer event here at home, attracting tourists year after year. 

I’d be particularly happy to welcome Gatineau residents who haven’t attended Les Grands Feux on site for several years, so they can see just how much our offer has evolved,” reveals Julie Moffatt, President and CEO of Les Grands Feux du Casino Lac-Leamy.
