  • Firefighters' Day History

    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.
