Permitted and prohibited objects

Speed up your entrance on site! Leave your bags and strollers at the checkroom, or better, at home or in the car.


To speed up the entrance on site, the crowd will be split in three lines : 

  • empty-handed people
  • search of strollers and mobility-impaired people
  • Search of backpacks

The Festival also reserves the right to conduct, in certains situations, a body search or a search using a magnetic detector.

The list of permitted and prohibited objects will be updated before the Festival.


Four checkrooms are available to leave objects that are prohibited on site.

Exception: weapons, alcohol, drugs and their by-products, animals, fireworks and firecrackers.

Bags will be searched before they're accepted at the checkroom.


Lost objects will be kept during 48 hours at the dedicated booth.

It will then be possible to pick them up at the Festival d’été de Québec offices located at 683, rue St-Joseph Est, bureau 150, Québec (Québec) G1K 3C1.

-> Objects like umbrellas ans water bottles will be kept for 30 days.

-> More valuable objects (keys, phones, etc.) for 90 days.

Unclaimed objects will then be donated to different Quebec City organisms.
