Founded in 1634 by Laviolette, the regional capital of the Mauricie region celebrated its 375th anniversary in 2009 and was named "Cultural Capital of Canada" that same year. Trois-Rivières takes its name from the three channels that form the Saint-Maurice River at its mouth. Favoured by its geographic location (it is connected to Montreal and Quebec City, but also to Sherbrooke and the south shore of the St. Lawrence River thanks to the Laviolette Bridge), Trois-Rivières has a great deal of maritime activity. The river flows close to the city centre and ships are part of the urban landscape. Cirque du Soleil has also been hosting on the stage of the Cogeco Amphitheatre every summer since 2015. The show presented is different every year, while being exclusive to Trois-Rivières.
