Montreal Families

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.

Food options on site

Though there are no restaurants open on site, you can order a traditional holiday meal that will be available as a take-away lunch box. Adult and child lunch boxes are available that include many tasty treats. Enjoy tourtière, meatballs and pork stew, chocolate-raspberry Christmas log, and more.

Consult the full menu directly online.
