FESTIVIA, Le Groupe Maurice’s festival for residents
Le Groupe Maurice is happy to present FESTIVIA, a program of extraordinary shows and activities involving renowned Quebec artists.
Le Groupe Maurice knows the countless restrictions surrounding the pandemic have completely changed your way of life in the residence. They have deprived you of the very activities you enjoy most and the people you most love to be with. Since Day 1, our recreationists have reinvented themselves time and again to adapt events to our new collective reality. And now, along with the recreation team at head office, they’ve boosted their creativity and organizational powers even further for you. The result? Something truly special indeed!
A festival to bring you joy and happiness
FESTIVIA is an unrivaled festival designed by the Groupe Maurice team for all residents. Including a program of musical shows and sports activities among others, it will entertain and impress the residents!
“With the residents’ happiness at heart, we know these unique shows and events will lift your spirits!”
Marc Ouimet, Assistant Vice-president, Operations and related services
It all kicks off with none other than Gregory Charles, whom you’ll have the chance to hear through an interactive live show. Weekly live performances will follow outside of your residence or via digital exclusives. FESTIVIA will span 9 weeks in each one of our residences.
