Activities and Events!
Time to get out your mountain bike
“Every spring, the Festival du film de vélo de montagne du Québec (Quebec Mountain Bike Film Festival) launches the mountain biking season. It’s time to forget the snow and get together to celebrate the start of the best time of year: bike season! Being half film festival and half trade show, the FFVMQ is also an opportunity to meet industry reps—manufacturers, bike shops, trail networks and cycling associations—all under one roof.”
Salle Alphonse-Desjardins, CÉGEP de l’Outaouais, 333 De la Cité-des-Jeunes Blvd., Gatineau
Saturday, March 23 from 2 to 11 p.m.

Music at the Museum
Did you know that Canada has a long history of military music? On Sunday, March 24, tap your toes to the sound of rousing marches. Attend this motivating concert (yes, yes, motivating, that’s what this music is made for!) surrounded by aircraft.

Le Petit Chicago birthday & moving party
Before it moves out of 50 Promenade du Portage, Le Petit Chicago wants to celebrate its 15th birthday in style. You’re invited to dress in the fashions of the 1930s, that heady time of illegal (and therefore much more exciting) parties. We just know it’s going to be an unforgettable evening!
