What was the Arena Like?
In February of 2007, my lady friend and I had tickets to see the Remparts play the Olympiques at the Colisée in Quebec. We pulled into the Expo-Cité grounds in our car, and were directed by the attendant to park in front of a large red brick building a short distance from the rink. It being February and Quebec City, we didn't linger, but instead rushed across the windswept parking lot towards the beckoning warmth of the Colisée.

Some months later, I found out that the red brick building we parked outside was the Pavillon de la Jeunesse, and unbeknownst to me at the time, it was a former QMJHL building.

Shit.

So yeah, I have not been to the Pavillon de la Jeunesse. If you have anything to contribute, send it to .

How To Get There
From Autoroute 73: Exit at Boul. Wilfred-Hamel and proceed east. The arena will be on your left. It's on the same grounds as the Colisée de Québec.
What's it Used For Today?
The Pavillon de la Jeunesse is Quebec City's historic "second arena", the one that you played when you weren't a big enough draw to sell out the Colisée next door. In the mid-1980's, when the NHL had arrived in the capital region and the original Remparts were drawing something less than flies, they chose to play several of their home games during mid-week and such at the 5,000-seat Pavillon instead of the 15,000-seat Colisée. In the end it didn't particularly help, as the original Remparts folded in 1985. The current incarnation of the Remparts have played pre-season games at the Pavillon, but to my knowledge they have never played a regular season game there.

The Pavillon today is home to the Quebec Radio X of the ubiquitous LNAH, as well as the ABA's Quebec Kebekwa.
