The festival is an original idea of Luigi Morabito, the festival's producer. For over 7 years, he has organized events for youth and families through his magazines Laval Families and Laval en Famille. His involvement with the magazines is undeniable through non-profit and community organizations. The idea came from his desire to offer a major event in Laval while highlighting the city's treasures and talents. The festival's mission is to offer the public the opportunity to discover and appreciate different types of cultural events mainly through humour.
