Press conference: Presentation of the Oktoberfest des Québécois 2012

The event partners at the press conference of Oktoberfest des Québécois 2012

On August 21, 2012, the Oktoberfest des Québécois 2012 was presented in a press conference in Repentigny. For the 7th year in a row, the 3-day event will be the hot spot for Quebec micro-breweries, local food producers and artisans, in a typically “Bavarian beer fest” atmosphere. The 2012 edition will actually be more Bavarian-tainted than ever, with two music groups coming especially to Quebec: List, Bavaria’s rock Newcomer 2012, and the Talbach Buam, the “guys from the river”, with their traditional music. The two groups’ performances is one of the many Bavaria-Quebec cooperation projects.
