The Citadelle of Quebec (The Changing Of The Guard)
Everyday at 10am, from June 24th to the first Monday of September, the changing of the guard takes place on the Citadelle's parade grounds. The ceremony marks the arrival of new sentries to relieve those on duty at the Garrison.
A BRIEF HISTORY: The Changing of the Guard has been a tradition at the Citadelle of Québec since 1928, except for a brief hiatus between 1939 and 1945. The ceremony features soldiers of the Royal Régiment decked out in their scarlet regimental dress and bearskins as the "new guard" relieves the "old guard" after 24 hours of sentry duty at the Citadelle's entrance. It is based on the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace and is the only such ceremony in the province—a must-see experience for visitors to Quebec's capital!
