What to do this weekend – May 13-15

Here are some ideas for activities to enjoy this weekend in the Townships!

Join the spring clean-up of Sutton’s mountain bike trails

On Saturday, May 14, volunteers, armed with picks and shovels, can gather at Mont SUTTON to help clean up the mountain bike trails, in preparation for the summer season. (The trails are scheduled to open on May 20.) Participants are eligible for a slew of prizes!

Reserve your place online (obligatory).

Feast on the goodies served at the Vignoble du Ruisseau winery

The first Souper du vignoble (Winery Dinner) featuring a spring-themed menu, will be served on Saturday May 14, at the Vignoble du Ruisseau. Saturday also sees the return of the Bistro sur braise (Cooking on embers) whose offerings include winery-raised beef and pork, flavoured with ingredients from its garden and maple grove.

Lastly, the ‘La Promenade’ program is starting up again. Through a guided tour and an explanatory video, visitors learn how a vineyard is operated. They can then sample the wine itself!

Bookings for the Bistro sur braise, the Soupers du Vignoble and a guided visit can be made online.

Check in to the UNIQ pop-up hotel 

The UNIQ hotel is a ‘village’ of unique, temporary and eco-friendly accommodation that moves around the province during the summer months and until August 1st, these pop-up units – a new take on glamping! - will be at the Parc de la Gorge in Coaticook. On site will be entertainer Monsieur Raph, whose performances are a mix of French songs and world music. Discover what the UNIQ hotel concept is all about!

You can buy a ticket for the show and accommodation online.

Relax on the terrace of a microbrewery!

Finally, the good weather has arrived! It’s time to sit out on a terrace, sipping a delicious beer in good company... The region's microbreweries not only manufacture tasty brews but many of them also have outdoor areas for you to enjoy. Why not visit one of these beer makers this weekend?

Immerse yourself in sounds and images

The Musée Beaulne in Coaticook is the venue for an extraordinary exhibition entitled ‘Profondeurs’. Put together by Osh’n (an artists’ collective), this immersive sound and visual art installation depicts seasonal changes in the Coaticook region. The images are projected on to the museum’s walls, immersing viewers in dramatic music and the sounds of nature – an intriguing, fascinating concept. (Until the end of May.)
