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 fall!
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! While you are still in the Grand-Mère sector, take the opportunity to eat a ‘Michigan’ hot dog at the snack bar L’Ami du passant.
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 in heated water! Psst. Bring your bathing cap, it is mandatory!
Sunday, put on your sneakers for a short hike on the Thibaudeau-Ricard trail. This is the perfect place to enjoy the fall colors!
I suggest you end this beautiful weekend with a good hot soup at Tous Les Jours Dimanche. The dining room is reopened! 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.
In the ‘Interzone’ street, and the colorful steps of the Carré Willow.
To the giant metal lady at Marina de Grand-Mère.
Different exhibitions and shows.
With the bakeries and flavors of the world.
