Tremblant Gourmand Festival kicks off this Thursday and runs from September 18 to 28 in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec. The first of its kind in North America, the Gourmand Festival describes itself as an adventure for the active epicurean and features 10 days of programming for the whole family.
The Mont-Tremblant Village will be filled with culinary demonstrations, exhibitors, and Oikos (who is a title sponsor of the event) will have their Snackmobile out giving away free samples. There will be a cookie-decorating station and a Smore’s bar! Learn how to make your own Nutella, get BBQ and grilling tips, and discover seasonal regional recipes.
The active portion of the event includes cyclo-gourmands, or gourmet bike tours, hiking, trail running, and even a wild mushroom-picking excursion!. These activities are held on Saturdays and Sundays, at 10 and 1 pm, departing from the Place Saint Bernard. Full schedule is available on the Tremblant Gourmand website (should we give the link here?). To participate you have to purchase a VIP Passport for $15, and all activities are free for Passport holders.
Food lovers also need to stretch, and Lole is organizing yoga and Zumba classes, open to all levels outside on the Place Saint Bernard. There will also be toning and stretching classes throughout the day, ending with a free Oikos snack.
The Tremblant Gourmand festival promises to entertain and delight your entire family. Tremblant Living Chalets still has a couple of luxury chalet rentals available for this weekend, and next, for you and your family to come and enjoy fresh air and great food! All of our properties are within a short walk or drive from the village.
