With fresh air invigorating our senses and nature displaying its most beautiful hues, it’s time to make the most of the fall season in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region! And there’s plenty to keep you entertained with a calendar packed with events and activities for everyone to enjoy. Here’s a snapshot of some of the best ways to have a blast as you celebrate Halloween and the arrival of fall colours!

Fall foliage: witness one of nature’s most glorious displays!

From October 7 to 9, 2023, don’t miss the Festival des couleurs de Rigaud, the region’s must-see foliage festival. This event is the perfect opportunity to admire the season’s bright colours while enjoying a packed lineup of outdoor shows, with artists such as Jonathan Roy and Bleu Jeans Bleu set to perform. Many activities for the whole family as well as an artisan and gourmet market will also add to the promise of a good time for festival-goers!

Discover CitrouilleVille’s pumpkin buildings!

May the Halloween festivities begin!

Feel like spending a day outdoors with the kids? Put on a few layers and head to CitrouilleVille! This pumpkin village has everything you need to enjoy the season: buildings made out of pumpkins, a corn maze, bouncy games and pumpkins of all shapes and sizes for you to pick from. You can also watch a puppet show at the open-air theatre and try your hand at fun carnival games! And when your stomach starts to growl, fill up on snacks at the food truck.

During Festiv’Halloween at the La Belle de Coteau-du-Lac farm, you can pick pumpkins and fall flowers, wander through a corn maze and snap cute souvenir pictures in the decorated photobooths. After nightfall, the maze is illuminated and takes on an eerie look with spooky characters bringing it to life. The bravest souls will love exploring this frightening course inspired by horror classics. After shivering in fear, you can catch your breath and warm up by the campfire!
