Everything you need to know for a successful Easter weekend

Published on March 22 2018

The Easter long weekend is often a time to get together with family, have fun, and delight your taste buds with a few sweet treats. The Outaouais has everything you need for an eggs-traordinarily successful Easter weekend!

Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate!

Nothing says Easter like a visit to a chocolate shop, aka chocolate heaven. Forget those drugstore mystery boxes—come discover the delicious products handmade by our local chocolatiers!

Learn all about the fine art of chocolate making at Chocomotive in Montebello, where you can sample a huge selection of chocolates made with locally sourced and Indigenous, certified organic and fair trade ingredients. For handmade chocolates made with passion, you have to stop by Beatrice and chocolates. Next stop, Rochef Chocolatier in Gatineau to stock up on truffles, dark chocolate and other delights. Complete your chocolate tour with a few sweet surprises from Chocolats favoris.

Activities for the whole family

Easter egg hunt

The Easter bunny never goes anywhere without his stash of chocolate eggs, and sometimes he drops a few along the way. You can help him find them by participating in family activities at the Canadian Children’s Museum!

Easter at the Farm

Come celebrate the arrival of spring—and many newborn animals—at Easter at the Farm at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum! Welcome the soft little lambs, marvel at the baby bunnies’ silky fur, and admire the fluffy chicks and ducklings. The whole family is invited to participate in the special activities offered all weekend.

Treat your taste buds to a hearty family brunch

To end the long Easter weekend on a tasty note, gather the whole family around a delicious sweet brunch. Several restaurants are offering a special Easter brunch, but many are likely to be full. Feel free to think outside the box and create your own family event by taking inspiration from Bianca Paquette’s list of the top gourmet brunch spots in Gatineau.

Happy Easter, everyone!
