THE BROME LAKE DUCK FESTIVAL, AN EVENT NOT TO BE MISSED!

Knowlton, Quebec, August 9 2007 – Famous the world over for its Brome Lake duck, the village of Knowlton (Lac-Brome) is already gearing up for its now famous fall street festival, the Brome Lake Duck Festival.

Knowlton, known one of Quebec’s most beautiful villages, will transform itself over two weekends this fall on September 22-23 and continues the week-end of September 29-30. The hours will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Highlights of the festival include a farmer’s market, exhibiting local and regional goodies from maple products to local wines. Musicians, artists, entertainment and games for children are also on the agenda. Of course, duck specialties will be on the menus of local restaurants. This year’s festival promises to be a feast for the senses, both culinary and visual as autumn’s colours will be out in all their splendour.

Organizers invited Marie-Andrée Leblond, a local artist, to design this year’s Duck fest poster. The poster is sure to become a collector’s item for those connoisseurs of both art and gastronomy. The poster will be for sale in many of the village’s boutiques and the Chamber of Commerce tourist offices in Brome Lake.

Culinary demonstrations

One of the most popular events during the festival is the daily culinary demonstrations offered by the many different chefs of the region every hour between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. It’s an excellent occasion for connoisseurs to learn the secrets of the art of cooking and serving duck.
