St. John’s Day
Celebrated annually on June 24, Quebec’s National Holiday (formerly known as Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day) has been a public holiday in Quebec since 1925. In North America, Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day has been celebrated since the early days of New France. Originally a devotional holiday, it took a patriotic turn in 1834 with Ludger Duvernay. The first Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day parade took place in Montreal in 1843. Since 1984, Quebec’s National Day celebrations have been organised by the Mouvement national des Québécois et des Québécoises (MNQ). Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day is also celebrated in the various French-speaking communities of Canada.
