SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

The team in charge of the Tremblant International Blues Festival has been integrating sustainable development into the event for a few years already. A few of the environmentally friendly measures implemented include managing the waste produced, choosing local suppliers, and reusing materials (water coolers, recyclable plates, and organic cotton t-shirts). The Festival’s team is very proud of the efforts made and the results generated and encourages visitors and artists to join the movement and do their part to help!
