The Cogeco Amphitheatre offers covered seating for 3,300 people (in addition to 204 seats in the corporative boxes) and a grass esplanade that can accommodate up to 5,500 people for a total of 9,000 people. Its sophisticated outdoor stage equipment can meet the needs of even the largest local, national and international productions. The amphitheatre is located on one of the most prominent sites in the regional capital at the confluence of the St. Lawrence River and St. Maurice River and is an engine of economic and touristic development for the entire area.
The Cogeco Amphitheatre presents a variety of outdoor shows between June and September. Cirque du Soleil has also signed a 5-year agreement with the Cogeco Amphitheatre to present an exclusive tribute show series each summer from 2015 to 2019.
During the rest of the year, the Cogeco Amphitheatre can be used for corporate events (launches, conferences, annual meetings, cocktail receptions, charity initiatives). Many of its halls and areas can be adapted to accommodate these events (lobby, concession area, stage, etc.). The stage house is closed off with a steel and glass door from February till June to be converted for the presentation of cabaret-style shows.
