1979

Townshippers’ Day is created in Quebec’s Eastern Townships

This first T-Day is organized by the Townshippers’ Association, a not-for-profit organization.

Like this very bilingual and bicultural region, Townshippers’ Day quickly became a larger community celebration of life in the Townships, annually attended by thousands of people from far and wide, from every walk of life, from all political stripes, and from countless linguistic and cultural backgrounds.

This annual event has grown in leaps and bounds since its creation and is held in a different Townships community each year. It has taken place in nearly every corner of the Eastern Townships.
