Beauport

Beauport is a northeastern suburb of the city of Qu├ębec, on the St. Lawrence River. Manufactures include paint, construction materials, printers, and hospital supplies. Attractions include Parc de la Chute-Montmorency (Montmorency Falls Park), which contains a fortification built in 1759 and Manoir Montmorency, the home of Edward Augustus, duke of Kent and Strathern, from 1791 to 1794.

Established in 1634, Beauport is one of the oldest European-founded communities in Canada. It incorporated as a city in 1976 through the amalgamation of seven municipalities. During the 1990s, its population continued to grow because of its economic diversification, available space, and outdoor recreational opportunities.

The city's historic district contains many interesting churches and homes, including Maison Bellanger-Girardin, where visitors can learn about Beauport's heritage. Annual events include the spring arts festival Salon de Mai and the summer Festival Folklorique des enfants du monde, a multicultural and international children's folklore festival.
