What's on in the Outaouais March 13-19
Visiting a sugar bush, tuning up your bike, doing a little spring skiing … the Outaouais is warming up! Here are our suggested activities for this week.

CAMP FORTUNE TURNS 100
A centennial—now that’s a milestone! You’re invited to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Camp Fortune, one of the oldest downhill ski resorts in the country, and to Dress up in ski gear or a costume from your favourite era! There will be activities throughout the day, and in the evening, a torchlight parade and fireworks. And we’re betting the après-ski will be epic!

CELEBRATE ST. PATRICK’S DAY
At the Chelsea Pub, the music of the Irish Bastards is sure to get you up and dancing a jig. In the Pontiac, the microbrewery L’Ancienne Banque invites you to drink a toast to the patron saint of Ireland, and at the L’Autre Œil bistro, you can choose from the largest selection of beer in Quebec. There’s sure to be some green beer!
AT THE DOMAINE DE L’ANGE-GARDIEN

OH, WHAT A NIGHT
In the Vallée-de-la-Gatineau, you’re invited to enjoy an experience you’ll never forget: a dogsled ride through the forest at night, with the moon as the only light source.
