What to do this weekend – October 12-14

In certain areas, the fall colours are just starting to peak and now is the time to enjoy this remarkable display of nature. In addition to the changing trees, there are lots of other things going on around the region. Here’s a sampling:

Sherbrooke met la table

For the next couple of weeks, during the Sherbrooke met la table event, 25 restaurants will be offering special menus. This initiative is designed to encourage diners to sample some of the city’s top restaurants such as Lo Ré, O Chevreuil, Overflow and Auguste. The Sherbrooke food event runs from October 11-25 and the cost ranges between $15-$20 (for lunch) and $25-$35 (for dinner). Time to tempt your taste buds!

40th edition of the Salon du livre de l’Estrie

Once more, this annual event has a great line-up of literary events and creative luminaries (think Guillaume Perreault, Patrick Senécal, Hélène Dorion, Francine Ruel, Marcel Sabourin…) Book signings, discussion panels, workshops for kids etc. A must for culture vultures!

If you’re a literary type, there’s another opportunity to indulge your passion this weekend. Starting on Thursday, October 11 (until October 14) the Knowlton Literary Festival will feature a number of book-related events. The Honorary Patron of the lit fest is award-winning crime writer, Louise Penny.
