Les Grands Feux du Casino Lac-Leamy adds a multimedia component and a new storyline thanks to major financial support for its 25th anniversary

Gatineau, July 19, 2022 — As of August 3, get ready to be immersed in an extraordinary universe. “You enter the site of Les Grands Feux, it is daytime. Following the fuse of time, you experience a slow transformation of space, a festive spirit is stirred within you. We invite you to an immersive journey into the heart of the light, under the pulsation of the fires that know how to transform the spark into flames. You will follow the rhythm of the music as it blazes, the creativity that springs from the shadows, the exhilarating smell of cooking on the fire. Your senses are awakened and you enter with us into the dance. We lead you to the fireworks of a great show that illuminates the immense sky. And you… you shine brightly.” 

This is a glimpse of the new narrative that the public will be treated to for the 25th anniversary of Les Grands Feux du Casino Lac-Leamy. Over the past two years, marked by the pandemic, the event has enjoyed a surge of innovation. Thus, it is an enhanced and forward-looking experience that participants will find, from August 3 to 20, thanks to the invaluable contribution of the governments of Canada and Quebec.

380,000 in funding from Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED)

As announced on July 14 by the Honourable Pascale St-Onge, Minister of Sports and Minister responsible for CED, as part of the Government of Canada’s financial support for festivals and cultural and sporting events in Quebec, Les Grands Feux du Casino Lac-Leamy is proud to receive a non-repayable financial contribution of $380,000 to ensure the event’s recovery and growth through flagship projects in the multimedia and digital fields!

“CED’s contribution is a breath of fresh air for the industry and for our organization! It allows us to innovate and ensure the continuous improvement of Les Grands Feux du Casino Lac-Leamy, a not-to-be-missed event that will celebrate a quarter century this year! This is a unique opportunity to open a new chapter on the future, by bringing the public into a whole new universe, using new technologies and deploying new unique experiences! This assistance and the new features that will result from it will allow us to concretize an innovative vision of the event and to solidify its impact on the region and on the entire tourism ecosystem of the region; hoteliers, restaurateurs, attractions, suppliers and workers,” enthusiastically expresses Marc-Antoine Massicotte, President and CEO of Les Grands Feux du Casino Lac-Leamy. 

“Our government continues to be there for businesses and organizations in the tourism sector. The financial contribution granted to Les Grands Feux du Casino Lac-Leamy of Gatineau is excellent news for the region and its attractiveness. Our support is an important step in the recovery efforts to attract tourists from Canada and around the world so that everyone can discover the best tourism experiences our country has to offer. And the unique experience and activities offered by Les Grands Feux are a perfect example,” said Greg Fergus, MP for Hull-Aylmer, on behalf of the Honourable Pascale St-Onge, MP for Brome-Missisquoi, Minister of Sport and Minister responsible for CED. 

A one-kilometer experience dotted with original and multi-sensory installations  

From lighted paths that transform before and after the show into a refreshing area called the Oasis, to a lighted rest area at the foot of the trees called La Lanterne, to a digital art work in a box called Lucioles and even an interactive light painting experience. These are all original experiences developed by Les Grands Feux du Casino Lac-Leamy that the public will be able to discover every evening starting at 6 p.m., thanks in part to the Tourism Assistance Fund. These experiences will offer a light-filled complement to the pyromusical shows so beloved by the public since 1996! In the long term, this foray into the multimedia and digital worlds will allow the event to stand out and build a rich narrative universe through future editions.
