Firefighters' Day, which is celebrated every second Saturday of August, is the Pincourt annual celebration since 1980.
The day’s highlights are without doubt the traditional parade of emergency and fire trucks, greatly appreciated by kids, the evening concert and the fireworks, acknowledged to be the most spectacular in the region.
The Town of Pincourt will hold a parade of emergency vehicles on Saturday, September 18, 2021!
So far, a dozen fire departments have confirmed their presence.
Departure: 12 p.m.
IMPORTANT: At the request of the Sûreté du Québec, please DO NOT spray the parade participants. Thank you for your cooperation.

Created in 1980 by the Pincourt Firefighters Association at the initiative of Michel Bernier, former director of the Emergency and Fire Prevention Department, Firemen’s Day is Pincourt’s big annual family event.
Having become a time-honoured tradition over the years, Firefighters' Day takes the place of Saint-Jean-Baptiste and Canada Day festivities in Pincourt.
Its popularity is due in no small part to the many loyal sponsors who have helped make it one of the region’s biggest parties!
Since it was created, the participation rate has never ceased to climb, with over 15,000 visitors now taking part.
