The Culture Trail
Did you know that the honorary patron of Gatineau’s Culture Trail this year was none other than famous Gatineau giant Jos Montferrand, featured in MG2018’s number 27 mosaiculture?
The Culture Trail, inspired by Boston’s famous Freedom Trail, takes residents and visitors through downtown Gatineau on a journey of discovery and rediscovery! This three kilometre course through city streets links points of interest, exhibits and various entertainment sites, as well as a terrific selection of restaurants.
This weekend, celebrate culture and discover some of the 11 attractions (culture, civic life, public markets and heritage sites), 20 public artworks, 10 murals, 12 exhibition and performance venues, nine guided tours, seven self-guided tours and a host of programmed activities at Jacques-Cartier Park. Visit gatineau.ca/viebranchee for full details.
UNAM-Canada, the National Autonomous University of Mexico’s extension school in Canada, will also present its cultural program with exhibitions, a choir and a theatre troupe. Members of the general public can enjoy many free activities and immerse themselves in Mexican and Hispanic culture.
