What to do this weekend – November 26-28

The spirit of Christmas is gradually taking hold in the Townships! There are Christmas markets to visit, local gifts to buy, Christmas trees to cut down, a Christmas log to order, festive meals to plan. The list is growing…

Don’t worry. If your head’s not quite there yet, there are other things on offer as well this weekend!

The Christmas markets are already in full swing!

This weekend, some 17 Christmas markets are open to the public - Granby, Waterloo, Sherbrooke, Sutton, Valcourt, Stratford, Cookshire-Eaton, Way’s Mills, to name a few. Take advantage of Christmas shopping early, to drop by one or two and pick out a unique gift for yourself or a loved one!

Select the prettiest Christmas tree

Aaaaah. The nostalgic aroma of pine that fills the house during the festive season….Don’t just reminisce. Get out there and pick out the prettiest tree you can find! Here’s a list of places where you can do just that.

Some suggestions for locally made gifts

There’s a treasure trove of locally produced gifts all over the Townships, if you know where to look. Here are some suggestions of places where you can pick up presents for your loved ones.

Order your ‘bûche de Noël’

This year, a number of pastry shops and chocolate makers will once again be offering their version of the traditional ‘Yule Log’ cake. Order yours now. They’re always in high demand!

Attend Une fille en or

This play, presented by the Théâtre du Double Signe company at the Théâtre Léonard-St-Laurent in downtown Sherbrooke, stars actress Amélie Dallaire. It is a one-person show (part comedy, part tragedy) in which she plays four women at different stages of their daily lives.
