The Festival Folifrets Baie-James is a unique snowmobile competition held in Chibougamau, in the Nord-du-Québec region for over 50 years. Two major events are the hallmark of this event: the "Randonnée du président", with nearly 650 participants, and the cross-country, an endurance race that welcomes some of the best recreational riders in Québec on 345 kilometers across the boreal forest. It is the whole city that vibrates to the rhythm of the festival during the ten days that lasts the event! .
