Between culture, arts, good food and nature, it is with great pleasure that I share some suggestions for you to make the most of a short stay in Shawi this winter!
If, like me, you are passionate about art and culture, I suggest you go to Factrie 701, a workshop and art gallery housed in a former factory, in the Grand-Mère sector. Exhibition, conference, or workshop, you will find your happiness among the possibilities!
On Saturday, a visit to the Leo Ayotte exhibition center is a must. It spreads over 2 floors and offers exhibitions of professional contemporary art artists, but also interactive exhibitions of a digital, scientific, heritage or educational nature.
Then, head to the pool for a swim! From September to June, the Centre des arts pool offers open swim sessions – perfect to exercise and relax! Psst. Bring your bathing cap, it is mandatory!
Sunday, put on your snowshoes (or simply your winter boots if the snow on the trail is packed enough) for a short hike on the Thibaudeau-Ricard trail. It is ideal for a short walk along the river, some falls and the site of an old hydroelectric dam.
I suggest you end this beautiful weekend with a good hot soup at Tous Les Jours Dimanche. The vegetable soup and the beetroot cake remind me of what my parents used to cook when I was a kid. Pure happiness.
In a one-of-a-kind workshop and art gallery.
Different exhibitions and shows.
With the bakeries and flavors of the world.
In snowy trails.
