When you arrive in the Eastern Townships, Granby welcomes you with open arms for family activities. Visits at the zoo, outdoor fun and festivals come together to create a memorable stay. This summer Granby is innovating to bring you two can’t-miss activities combining culture, cycling and all things gourmet.

Artria, an open-air museum

Culture and physical activity join forces for this trailblazing artistic project in the Eastern Townships. The team behind Artria wanted to showcase the collection of monumental sculptures that already lines the cycling network, thereby combining the pleasures of a visit to the museum with that of a bike ride. The works of art have been gathered, complemented with landscaping, but arranged in a set-up inspired by traditional museums. Circuits have been designed to suit all types of visitors. Contemplate and discover these sculptures located around Granby, Bromont, Shefford Township, Waterloo and Warden and see the works of talented contemporary artists.
