With rich fertile lands, Île d’Orléans
has everything you need to fill your picnic basket. Not only can
you pick up ingredients directly at farms, but you can also use
the picnic tables many have set up on their properties so that you
can taste their products as soon as possible. You’ll find craft
beers, cider, vegetables and fruits, not to mention cheeses,
breads, sweets and lots of other treats. Île d’Orléans truly is a
destination to savour!
No matter what your favourite genre of music is, you can find a
concert you’ll love on the island. Classical music enthusiasts as
well as new converts will be amazed by the quality of the performances
presented by Musique de chambre à Sainte-Pétronille.
From June 27 to August 22, 2019, concerts will be held at the
church – which has unparalleled acoustics – and will feature six
musical ensembles interpreting the works of the great composers:
Beethoven, Schumann, Liszt and many more.
Contemporary sounds on the other hand can be heard at La
Boîte à chansons at Espace Félix-Leclerc.
This best-kept secret is a venue that welcomes well-known artists
in an intimate setting. Concerts take place from June 21 to
September 13, 2019.
Days simply fly by on Île d’Orléans.
Put off your plans to return to the mainland and make the most of
your stay by admiring the sunset, soaking up the atmosphere at
restaurants or having an ice cream cone under the stars. Nights
and evenings on the island are so animated that you’ll probably
end up staying overnight at one of its cozy B&Bs or inns.
