Drummondville, March 2, 2020 – The Village québécois d’antan (VQA) activated its online ticketing for the Sweet Village this morning. A total of 28 tables will be offered to visitors between March 21 and April 19. The VQA has also chosen to return to its traditional formula at the request of visitors.
“Last year, we tried a new formula allowing a greater variety of dishes on the menu, and we animated a few houses to enhance the experience of our visitors. However, we quickly realized that our visitors are looking for the friendly atmosphere and traditional experience of a tasty sugar shack meal served in the middle of the tables and shared with family and friends,” says Guy Bellehumeur, VQA’s Executive Director. “This year, even the children’s drink was not forgotten! “he adds with a smile.
In March and April, sugar lovers are invited to gather their family, friends or co-workers around a traditional meal served at will on their table at a competitive price. Although the houses in the village will be closed at this time of year, the admission ticket will include access to several activities related to the sugar theme :
all-you-can-eat maple taffy;
horse-drawn carriage rides;
visit of the ancestral sugar shack (aboard a tractor-drawn sleigh!);
Interpretation area and games to help you get to know the area;
Better yet, our donut shop will be open to allow visitors to buy sweet treats for the ride home! In short, the whole family will be asking for more!
And for those who would like to walk around the village and enjoy the few activities offered without eating on site, there is also the possibility of buying a low-cost entrance ticket for the visit only!
The Sweet Village will welcome visitors on Saturdays and Sundays from March 21 to April 19 and on Easter Monday. For a detailed schedule or to reserve your spot, visit www.villagequebecois.com/village-sucre or call 1 877 710-0267. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to get the latest news!
