A beer festival, fall activities, a studio tour… just some of our suggestions for this weekend. Check it out!

Party time at the Grande Coulée!

The Grande Coulée is a beer festival at Mont Orford where the foot of the mountain is transformed into a veritable ‘brewing village’. 10 regional microbreweries will be represented, including Brasserie Dunham, La Knowlton Co., and La Memphré. Between tastings, take yourself to the peak where a number of lookout points allow you to admire the spectacular views! Live music rounds out the party ambience….
