Updated on Nov 18, 2021

Are you looking for original gift ideas? Why not offer a little bit of culture? Here are 10 outing suggestions that should inspire you in your quest for the perfect gift.

By Marie-Claude Masse


Sur la scène Davignon Tickets

Louis-Jean Cormier, Matt Holubowski, Soran, Qwartz, Patrice Michaud … do these artists resonate with the tastes of a loved one? If so, hurry! Get your tickets from the cultural promoter Sur la Scène Davignon for the show you wish to offer. Performances will be held either at the Emmanuel Church or in the Massey-Vanier auditorium, both very friendly and welcoming Cowansville venues.

For Louise Penny Fans

Do you have Louise Penny fans in your entourage? Offer them tickets for the Three Pines Tour! They’ll be thrilled, and this, even if they have to wait until May to participate. They’ll discover places—in Knowlton, Sutton, North Hatley, etc.—that served as inspiration for the popular author’s novels. Full-day, half-day and two-hour packages are available. The tour includes a guide, transport, access to the sights and tastings.

A Tea Time Invitation, My Dear!

Established in a magnificent heritage home, in Lennoxville, the Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre welcomes fine exhibitions, but also invites you to come for tea, in the English tradition, cucumber sandwiches and all! A very unique outing that will certainly delight your friend, your mom, or your favourite niece, why not! You can purchase a gift certificate directly at the Centre. However, please note that the English Tea is not offer during winter.

Spend Some Time at the MBAS

The Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke has had a strong impact with its permanent exhibit Couleurs manifestes. The exhibit presents the works of more than fifty important artists. Through their art, you’ll witness the powerful resonance, sense transmission and symbolism colours can offer.

A Gift-Card that Always Pleases!

Where? At the University of Sherbrooke’s Centre culturel Maurice O’Bready. All you need to do is fill in the amount you wish to give, and the card can be applied to any upcoming shows. Roxane Bruneau for your godchild? Alain Choquette for your mom? The play J'aime Hydro for your best friend? There are also shows for teens, and even for smaller children, perfect for family outings!

A Show Inside a Cabaret Ambiance

Have you ever been to the Vieux-Clocher in Magog? This friendly cabaret-style hall welcomes a wide range of artists. Guylaine Tanguay, Maude Landry, Guillaume Pineault, Simon Delisle, 2 Frères, Luce Dufault… They’re all scheduled to perform at the Vieux-Clocher in 2022! Offer one of these shows as a gift or offer a gift certificate which will allow your loved ones to choose a show for themselves!

Listening to Plants & Animals

The cultural café Beat & Betterave, in the town of Frelighsburg, is where you’ll send your favourite music fans, to attend a performance by the indie-rock group, Plants & Animals, who will present his most recent and very short album Jungle. A rare visit to this charming small performance hall. February 25, 2022.

A Summer Theatre Outing This Winter

Kilimanjaro, a comedy by Mario Jean with, among others, Valérie Blais and Pierre Verville, will be presented at the Théâtre de la Marjolaine, in Eastman, starting June 16, until August 20, 2022.

A Combo Including a Gourmet Supper and a Show

Bobby Bazini, Koriass, Sara Dufour, Beyries, The Barr Brothers… These are some of the talented artists who will be performing at the Granada Theater in Sherbrooke throughout 2022. And to complete your gift, offer your loved one a supper in one of Sherbrooke’s downtown restaurants along with the selected show! Gratitude guaranteed!

Offer some True Happiness!

At the P’tit Bonheur in Saint-Camille! In this small, very charming performance venue, many interesting things are happening. The poet-performer Natasha Kanapé Fontaine, the singer Angel Forrest, the humorist Jean-François Mercier, and many others, will be taking the stage to offer intimate performances. And, for $17, a supper is offered before the show begins.
