Visit a traditional Quebec village
The Village Québécois d’Antan invites Montrealers to a festive wonderland this season with a visit to its Desjardins Village in Lights.
The traditional Quebec village and its 19th & 20th century buildings are adorned with more than 25,000 lights, and you can wander the streets, talk with the villagers and wave hello to Santa. Outdoor fireplaces are a cozy spot to warm up with a hot chocolate or savour a treat from The Doughnut Shop.
Village of Lights hosts activities & shopping
On site, families can take part in a snowball fight, make a Christmas ornament, listen to music and visit a market. The General Store has decorative items, handmade products, and old-fashioned goodies.
