Trois-Rivières is celebrating the 31th year of its poetry festival! More than a tourist attraction, a stay in the poetry capital during the festival is an unforgettable experience, where poets, poems and the public take part in the most noble of human pursuits! Take part in 350 activities during 10 days in more than 70 locations, where hundreds of poets from over 30 countries on 5 continents await you in cafés, bars, restaurants and museums. Every year 400 poems are posted on the city walls. Readings, writing workshops and lively gatherings combine to create a very special collective event for everyone who attends.
