Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
Among the activities on offer this weekend are works of art, a gourmet race, the first edition of the “Repair Café”, as well as a number of foodie experiences.
Magog’s Centre d’Arts visuels (Visual Arts Centre) is currently hosting an event entitled ARTborescence, featuring the 20 or so artists who participate in the region’s annual studio tour. As well, at the International Museum of Naïve Art, which is in the same building as the Visual Arts Centre, visitors can view a collection of Haitian art - L’art haïtien, entre magie et seduction – which showcases the “magic and seduction” of the Caribbean island.
Wednesday-Sunday, from 1pm-5pm | ARTborescene runs until December 23 | L’art haitien, entre magie et séduction is on display until December 17
Participate in one of the races during the last stage of the Gourmet Tour. You can choose between a 5, 10 or 21-km run and there’s a 1-km run for kids. Your efforts will be rewarded with a post-race party where you can sample regional food and beers made by local microbreweries!
