The Saint-Antoine Fall Colors Festival is an annual festive event that has been very successful since the beginning. The organizing committee, composed of citizens of Saint-Antoine and representatives of various community organizations, organizes a variety of recreational activities for all age groups. The most important objectives of this festival are to create a community gathering between citizens and people from other communities in addition to stimulating the local economy.
Over the years, the Saint-Antoine Fall Colors Festival has evolved. It went from lasting a weekend to two weeks full of activities. Volunteer firefighters competition, Show 'n’ Shine: antique car show and parade, community breakfast, various workshops, farmers market, family run, social dances, family activities, sports tournaments, bingo and much more have been on the schedule over the years.
A full week of activities takes a lot of organization. The organizing committee is always looking for new members. If you are interested, please complete the Form – Volunteer.

History2001 – Mayor Ronald Cormier had the idea of organizing the Saint-Antoine Fall Colors Festival in early September to replace the Poutine Festival, which had not been held since 1985. The annual skills competition for volunteer firefighters as well as the Show 'n’ Shine, an exhibition of antique cars, in support of the Tree of Hope campaign, were the main activities of the festival.
2006 – The Ti-Toine mascot was named the official festival mascot.
2011 – In addition to the annual donations for the past 10 years, the Saint-Antoine Fall Colors Festival committee donated $ 5,377.26 to the Tree of Hope and earned a space on the wall of fame at the Dr. Léon-Richard Oncology Centre at the Dr Georges-L.-Dumont Hospital in the category of donations of $ 25,000 and over.
2012 – Ronald Cormier decides to resign from the Saint-Antoine Fall Colors Festival committee. He will continue to participate in the organization of the Show ‘n’ Shine.
2013 – The Show ‘n’ Shine organizing committee must think of a new place to host their event following the construction of the multifunctional centre. Vital and Bernice Léger, organizers of the Show ‘n’ Shine since the beginning, step aside to give their seat to the next generation.
2014 – Paul LeBlanc organizes the 2014 edition and the new location of the Show ‘n’ Shine is in Renauds Mills, outside the Village of Saint-Antoine town limits.
