20th anniversary celebrations

Cruise for a day

/ May 25, 2019

Celebrating 20 years of independence for the Port of Sept-Îles! A Port first: The “cruise for a day” event featured 2 excursions, giving over 100 people the chance to sail around the archipelago and discover legendary Sept-Îles. The bigtop was just as abuzz with activity as when a cruise ship comes to call, with artists and artisans on hand to share their culture and creations. Local product tastings, a coffee at Clickafé in the morning, and a frosty beer at La Compagnie in the afternoon.

20 years of independence at the Port of Sept-Îles—a milestone worth celebrating! Sept-Îles public market, tastings, workshops, mackerel fishing and pie baking contests, music, games, and dancing. Prizes, gifts, treats, and fun for all.

The Port of Sept-Îles and Microbrasserie La Compagnie were proud to unveil their brand new beer. The result of a joint initiative to mark the local port authority’s 20th anniversary, the new beer will be marketed under the name Pointe aux Basques. In addition to serving up a truly delectable new beer, for every beer sold the Port of Sept-Îles and Microbrasserie La Compagnie will make a donation to a Sept-Îles community organization. The first to benefit from this partnership was L’Envol-Maison de la famille.

Tickets and family passes were available for various activities and sites.

Noël au Vieux-Poste magical partner

/ December 26, 2019

This free holiday-themed activity at the Old Trading Post was all about bringing Sept-Îles and Uashat mak Mani-utenam families together to celebrate end-of-year holiday traditions. It was also the perfect opportunity for the public to enjoy the wintery wonder of the Old Trading Post of Sept-Îles cultural site, which is usually closed for the winter.
