Papal Visit

The Plains of Abraham will have programming to focus on the Spirit of Reconciliation. The general public will be able to gather on July 27 and 28 at two locations on the Plains: a main site, behind the Plains of Abraham Museum and the Quebec City Armoury, and a secondary site, in front of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (MNBAQ). Giant screens will allow people to watch live the events in which the Pope will participate.

A Popemobile tour of the Plains of Abraham will take place on the afternoon of July 27. For more information, see the press release by the papal visit. From approximately 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., those gathered on the main site will also be able to enjoy programming with Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists. The program is available on the papal visit website.

The Plains of Abraham site will remain free, no tickets are required. Sanitary facilities and water stations will be available on site.

The Plains of Abraham are pleased to be able to contribute to this historic visit, focused on Indigenous healing and reconciliation. Truth and reconciliation constitute one of the pillars of the Plains of Abraham's 2022-2025 strategic plan, making this collaboration all the more significant.

Please note that the Plains of Abraham Museum will be closed on July 27 and 28.
