Events and festivals

As a partner in Québec’s entertainment industry, Loto‑Québec supports events that are selected based on their potential for drawing tourists and generating social and economic spin-offs for communities, as well as on actions taken to reduce their impact on the environment.

Events that also complement our entertainment offerings or can be added to programming in our gaming establishments are also considered.

Criteria for Loto‑Québec sponsorship

To be considered, the event must meet certain criteria.

1. Category

The event must take place mainly outdoors, may have a “festival” format and have been held at least three previous times.

2. Spin-offs

The event must bring people together, have significant economic and social spin-offs for the community and have been developed in such a way as to reduce its impact on the environment.
