March is maple season in the province of Quebec. As the snow and ice start to melt, the sap flows from the trees. This yearly event becomes a celebrated tradition here and EC Montreal is no exception! We embrace the season and love to show it off to our students. In March, our students should expect to see maple festivals and sugar shack outings.
In addition, we will be introducing our students to an annual maple food festival called Verdun’s Cabane Panache Et Bois Rond. This festival takes place in the neighborhood of Verdun on Wellington Street between the streets De L’Eglise and Rielle, close to metro De L’Eglise.
It’s so much more than just a sugar shack, it’s also the biggest urban lumberjack party in the city celebrating everything from maple taffy, square dancing, woodcutting and of course, food and music!
But that’s not all, there will be lumberjack competitions, food stands, whiskey drinkeries, ax throwing, wood sculpting, a barbershop and even a miniature farm.
It all takes place from March 22-25, and here’s the complete schedule:
- Thursday, March 22, 2018: 5 pm to 9 pm
- Friday, March 23, 2018: 5 pm to 10 pm
- Saturday, March 24, 2018: 11 am to 7 pm
- Sunday, March 25, 2018: 11 am to 5 pm
There’s never a more awesome celebration of food and Quebec culture than during the sugaring off season. It’s amazing to have a traditional Quebecoise sugar shack experience in the heart of Montreal.
Life is sweet at EC Montreal!
