With its distinctly folk cachet, this major tourist event in Maskinongé county recreates the ambiance of a period where neighbourliness and joie de vivre ruled. Period dress, music and traditional foods all contribute to bringing our forefathers' festive spirit back to life. Captivating shows, local product tastings, a truly unique parade, the crowning of the Reine-Meunière and a wide range of activities for one and all are on the program of these 10 days of fall festivities.
Discover local culture at the Festival de la Galette de Sarrasin and indulge in the warm welcome the Louisevillois have in store for you. It's a date in the land of buckwheat!
