Traditional music, buildings from another
time, horse-drawn carriage rides, a general store and, above all,
good old-fashioned entertainment will transport back in time to
19th- and early-20th-century Quebec. Discover the Village
québécois d’antan in Drummondville, in the Centre-du-Québec
The friendly villagers will offer you and
your family a warm historical experience reminiscent of yesteryear
Quebec from Wednesday to Sunday starting June 24. Learn more about
the customs and trades of that period and witness the theatrical
re-enactments that visitors know and love!
Visitors can get around the village while
pedaling. Go-karts with enough seats for the whole family are great
for admiring the attractions of the old farm while staying active.
Rent one of these karts at the creamery, where incidentally,
irresistible frozen sweets are served.
When it's time to take a break, take a moment
to relax in the rest area where lounge chairs, umbrellas and
picnic tables are at visitors’ disposal. This lets the whole
family recharge their batteries before continuing to explore the
70 period homes, buildings and log cabins!
This summer, you’ll meet Adélard, a man
who founded his own village, Saint-Tilard, after the priest
refused to let him run for mayor. In Saint-Tilard, the most
important thing is having fun! This spectacular production
promises an immersive adventure with the villagers, soundtracked
by traditional music. To see how this story will play out and
check out all of the activities offered this summer from 10:30
a.m. to 4:30 p.m., visit the Village québécois d'antan website.
Tickets for both guided and self-guided tours are available online
