The Festival western de Saint-Tite is an annual event held in September, in Saint-Tite, Quebec. It developed from a rodeo inaugurated in 1967 to promote the leather industry. It hosts a major rodeo competition, along with other cultural events. During the two weeks of competition, the entire town shuts down to accommodate spectators.

Voted "Best Outdoor Rodeo in North America" since 1999, St-Tite's festival, now in its 42nd edition, attracts around 450,000 visitors every year.
