Historical Pedestrian Rally
The Port of Québec’s Historical Pedestrian Rally is back for a 6th edition! Building on last year's success, the Rally will be held again in digital form in collaboration with MySmartJourney, a Québec-based company specializing in the creation of digital routes. The Rally is accessible to the general public on the port's territory as of today and will continue until October 31, 2022.
An initiative of the Québec Port Authority's employees, the Historical Rally aims to promote the port’s history by inviting citizens and visitors to explore the most significant historical sites, buildings and monuments scattered throughout its territory. This educational activity is part of the program to foster the port’s historical heritage and is the result of a valued collaboration with the Port's partners, notably the Naval Museum of Québec and Huron-Wendat Nation.
Participants are invited to visit the 10 interactive stations along the route, which are equipped with 100% web contactless technology. Simply scan the QR code on each station with a cell phone to access a gold mine of textual, visual, and video content. Specific stations along the route will give participants a chance to win one of the prizes provided by the Rally’s generous sponsors: Tourisme Wendake, Musée de la civilisation, Excursions Maritimes Québec, and Strøm Spa.
