As well as promoting our local businesses, artists, artisans, producers and organizations, this year will have a particular flavour as it marks the 400th anniversary of Samuel de Champlain’s passage up the Ottawa River in search of new navigable waterways.
To commemorate this historic event, SAVOUR THE PONTIAC will be transformed into a 17th century marketplace on Sunday July 28, 11 am to 4 pm. You will find period costumes, storytellers, music, native rituals, an exhibit on the Chats Falls Park and much more.
The festivities will be initiated by a community dinner at 6 p.m. on July 27th. It's FREE !! Seating is limited, so reserve early by contacting Inès Pontiroli at 819-455-9667 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
