The 9th Cabane Panache et Bois Rond, the annual backwoods gathering, is back for four days of decadent gourmet experiences, swinging bands, general store shopping, square dancing, axe throwing and immersive camp activities. On March 21, roll up your sleeves, don your fur hat and join the lumberjacks on Promenade Wellington to enjoy all the free activities and experience #VerdunLuv at its best! Plaid shirts, overalls, beards and muddy boots are more than welcome!
It’s the perfect place to leave work behind and have some fun!
The teams from Promenade Wellington and the Verdun Borough, official presenters of the musical component, worked tirelessly to present a spirited program, and it’s all free! The four days of festivities of the biggest urban lumberjack party will be opening on Thursday at 5 p.m. with Canailles taking Wellington Street by storm on Thursday evening at 7 p.m. On Friday evening, see Clay and Friends at 7 p.m. followed by Random Recipe. On Saturday, local workers will warm up the crowd with the Big Bill fashion show just before Bleu Jeans Bleu and Galaxie set the stage on fire at 3:30 p.m. On Sunday, for a wonderful close to the event, the Winston Band and Vilain Pingouin will have the crowd dancing jigs starting at 12 p.m. On the Forest stage, a traditional Quebec program will be presented every day. Leave your worries behind and join the fun!
Did someone say maple products? Yessir! Extra maple whatever on everything please!
Make believe its lumber camp break time and indulge in Promenade Wellington’s gastronomic offer, with 20 restaurateurs and 6 bars offering a revisited Quebec cuisine menu. And since Quebec is incredibly diverse, world cuisine will also be part of the celebration. Have a taste of Marquise Express’s maple chômeur pudding and maple ham poutine, Sweet Lee’s candied bacon almond maple tartlet or sugar shack croissant, and Villa Wellington’s maple dulce de leche churros or maple braised pork shoulder tacos, among others. You’ll definitely be saying “yum!” many, many times! Comptoir 21’s cod nuggets and clam chowder will be on the menu, in addition to Station W’s bacon and cheddar grilled cheese on French toast, not to mention Crèmes Boboule’s maple butter chocolate cone and maple sausage crepes! You’ll get to sample many original creations by Queue de poisson, Blackstrap BBQ, Maltéhops and Bar Palco. Yep, it’s all very mouthwatering! Be sure to taste the Cimonak, a canned beer for serious beer lovers, created by BENELUX craft brewery just for this event. On retrouvera également le coin Crown Royal qui offrira une dégustation de whisky canadien!
Grab your carpet bag, we’re going to the Promenade!
The general store, with more than 15 Quebec craft and local product booths, will be set up on Promenade Wellington on Saturday and Sunday starting at 11 a.m. The finest camp activities will also take centre stage: square dancing, axe throwing, old-fashioned games and revisited backwoods games such as boot hockey, billiards, tug-of-war and a wood chopping competition. With barbers, museums and storytellers, and the inimitable maple taffy on snow, there’ll be something for everyone from March 21 to 24, 2019, on Promenade Wellington.
