Word from the Mayor

For the 35th year, the City of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu is hosting the Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu International Balloon Festival.

35 years filled with colour, wonder, and unforgettable memories.

For local residents, this flagship event is not to be missed. But the International Balloon Festival is also famous well beyond our borders.

This year, our hearts are set on celebrating more than ever. In fact, I couldn’t be more proud to underscore the event’s 35th anniversary, which we will celebrate on August 14 as part of the Big Celebration. The City of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu is pleased to announce that it is offering all Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu households a complimentary ticket for this event. All of the details are available in the summer edition of Complicité magazine.


In closing, I would like to congratulate the organizers who are committed to offering diverse, surprising programming every year. I would also like to thank all of the employees and volunteers that help make the International Balloon Festival such a tremendous success. Finally, I would like to underscore the commitment and loyalty of our partners and sponsors.

Let the celebrations begin!


Alain Laplante

Mayor of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu
