What to Do in the Townships During the March Break

Of course, you’ll find a panoply of winter sports you can practise, like alpine or cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, fatbiking … but you’ll also discover some special events you’ll be able to enjoy during the March Break. Here are eight of them!

Discover our local products and producers

The Québec: Riche et savoureux event will be held next February 27, and is organized by the Tourism Program’s graduating class of the CEGEP de Granby. However, you won’t need to leave your home to discover the products offered in our region. Purchase your box filled with our terroir products and enjoy the Quebec Agritourism conferences online.

Participate in the Grande Dégelée Activities in Granby

Walking along illuminated pathways, gliding down mounds of snow, skating in Miner Park in the middle of downtown Granby, the activities of this second edition of the Grande Dégelée are free and will unfold throughout an entire month.

Celebrate the Carnaval de Sherbrooke’s Virtual Edition with your Family

Be there from February 26 to February 28. Culinary workshops, juggling workshops, storytelling, Zumba activity, performances by Damien Robitaille and Mario Tessier, plus many contests to really take advantage of winter outside!

Go on a Treasure Hunt or Photo Rally

Saturday, March 6, three family activities will be organized at the Base de plein air André-Nadeau. You’ll need to explore the entire site as you search for nature elements when you participate in their photo rally activity. You could also participate in a treasure hunt for which you’ll be given an explorer’s map, a compass, and quiz questions you’ll need to answer. Finally, you’ll be able to attend a workshop on how to build a winter survival shelter. Reservations are mandatory for all three activities.

Learn more about the Zoo de Granby and its animals

From March 1st to 5th, starting at 9:15 am, attend one of the videoconference meetings, concocted especially for you, followed by a small creative workshop related to the theme of the day!

Participate in the Winter Challenge at the Centre national de cyclisme de Bromont

The CNCB encourages you to go biking this winter! Until March 12, accumulate your fatbike or spin pedalling hours and you might win a great participation prize! Would you like to know where to find the best places to ride a fatbike in the Townships? It’s right here!

Dog-sledding across the Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook

Only between February 25 to February 28! You’ll need to reserve your outing in advance online. Take advantage of your visit to the Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook as you discover their entire winter program. Among the activities offered, their great outdoor escape game, La légende du Liéri, and their kick-sled rentals.

Join in the Celebration of the Carnaval Mégantuque

From March 5 to March 7, the Carnaval Mégantuque is inviting itself into your home!

Build your very own snow creation (a snow person, an igloo, a snow castle, etc.) and share it on Facebook for a chance to win one of their many participation prizes.
