What could be better than festive music that will make you kick up your rubber boots, heart-warming food that will fill your tummy and a tipple or two that will quench your thirst. You couldn’t find a better way to celebrate the maple-syrup season.

COOKERY & COCKTAILS
 $2 or 4$ Bite sizes

The quality of a lumber camp's cookery was mandatory to keep the men happy. The foreman who hired a bad cook, even had some difficulties to find new workers. When the men came back from the woods, the meal had to be ready. They were starving.

You’ll see it by yourself, the suggested menu could full the greediest lumberjack for at least a week! This year, 16 restaurants and 3 pubs of the arrondissement of Verdun are offering their creations. 

 Thursday, March 23 and Friday, March 24

This year, Metro, sponsor of the event, will be sharpening the public’s appetite with their space, the Sugar Shack. Discover the new Irresistibles maple syrup taste tags and try out a recipe using maple syrup, cooked up by a Metro chef, Pascaline Gouin.

Green event management

The provision of snacks and refreshments by the local restaurateurs produces litter and scraps that are mostly recyclable or compostable. The Cabane panache et bois rond wants to reinforce the eco-responsible nature of the event. The organization aims to create an event where there’s no waste. For many years now, the organization has been encouraging green waste management.

Cascades
Waste management and compostable packaging

Thanks to Cascades, event partner in eco-responsibility, waste collection and composting points are strategically situated around the site to encourage the collection of debris. There will also be a team on site to take charge of waste management.

La Tablée des Chefs
Collection of food scraps

This year, for the first time, the organization has decided to call on the sustainable food brokerage service of “La Tablée des Chefs.” They act as an agent connecting those who produce surplus food products, specifically the donors from the HRI sector (hotels, restaurants and institutions), and agencies that redistribute these food items to persons in need.

GENERAL STORE

Located in the heart of the village, the general store used to gather the communities who didn’t have any other place to share news, except from the Church Plaza. The shopkeeper knew all the last news and most of all… the gossips!

More than 15 artists and crafters will be represented at our general store that will celebrate raw materials and traditional savoir-faire.
