Quebec welcomes you to the 2016 CAMaraderie
CAMaraderie is alive and well once again. The 2016 CAMaraderie is being held in beautiful Quebec City next April so now is a good time to start planning to attend. There is lots to see and do in Quebec City. The crown jewel of French Canada, Québec City is one of North America’s oldest and most magnificent settlements. Its picturesque Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site, a living museum of narrow cobblestone streets, 17th- and 18th-century houses and soaring church spires, with the splendid Château Frontenac towering above it all. There’s more than a glimmer of Old Europe in its classic bistros, sidewalk cafes and manicured squares.
You can get a taste of the city in a single day, but linger at least a weekend if you can. The city’s compact size makes it ideal for walking, and it shines brightest when you slow down. The main focus of your visit will be CAMaraderie but try to include the Old Town, split between the Old Upper Town (Haute Ville), perched above the St Lawrence River on the Cap Diamant cliffs, and the Old Lower Town (Basse Ville), where Samuel de Champlain established the first French foothold in 1608. The Old Town is packed with museums, mansard-roofed houses and cobblestone streets just begging to be explored.
Outside the walls, through the historic town gates of Porte St-Louis and Porte St-Jean, four additional neighbourhoods are easily accessible: St-Jean Baptiste, Colline Parlementaire, Montcalm and St-Roch, each boasting wonderful restaurants, shopping and nightlife. Also noteworthy are the vast Plains of Abraham, where the British defeated the French in 1759; nowadays enshrined as a national park, this area offers superb recreational opportunities. Québec City goes to great lengths to entertain visitors.
All summer long, musicians, acrobats and actors in period costume take to the streets, while fantastic festivals fill the air with fireworks and song. The annual Quebec City Magic Festival will be taking place at the same time as CAMaraderie so there will be lots of magic to enjoy. Just look at the line-up of performers scheduled to be a part of the great event: Our very own Shawn Farquahar, past president of the Canadian Association of Magicians and also of the International Brotherhood of Magicians. Shin Lim, participant in this year’s FISM competition in Rimi, Itlay who tied for first in Card Magic and representing Canada; Christian Schenk, creator of the Phoenix Deck; Harry Allen, magic purveyor; Mathieu Bich and Vincent Hedan. The Quebec team has planned great workshops, great performances, great dealers, and first and foremost great CAMaraderie.
Mark your calendar and plan to attend. Set the dates aside and plan to be there. Did we mention the dates. They are April 21 to April 24 in Quebec City. We have a great venue right near the parliament buildings. It’s a close walk to Old Town. You should plan to make that a part of your visit to Quebec City. Once again set the dates aside and plan to attend. This will be the highlight of your year.
