Located near the bridge to the island, Espace Félix-Leclerc showcases the works of Quebec poet Félix Leclerc.

Open year-round, the site includes an informal concert hall that seats 148 where popular Quebec and French singers, as well as emerging talent, perform. A snack bar is open in the summer. Leclerc’s books and associated products are sold at the onsite gift shop. On the second floor is found a permanent exhibit celebrating the life and achievements of Félix Leclerc and a documentation centre with many audio and video sources. A 20-minute video produced by Leclerc’s son Francis from over 50 years of archived material is shown at the concert hall.

In the summer, the stairway leading to the second floor is transformed into an art gallery where are displayed original works by renowned artists. The paths winding through the grounds lead visitors on a poetic journey to discover the woods and fields of Leclerc’s island home.

Groups of all ages welcome.
Special program for school groups.
Concert hall available for rent.
