For its 22nd edition, the Duck Festival will ride the coat tails of its 2016 success, and be held on just the weekend of September 23 and 24 for two days of foodie activities along St.Paul’s next to the old courthouse and down Lakeside to Knowlton Rd.
“Instead of relying on the old recipe of favouring restaurant experiences throughout TBL over two weeks”, said Armand Gaudet, who organised the event, “it will be centred on offerings from near and far to expose visitors to a myriad of experiences: specialties, be they patés, jams, savouries, cheeses, sweets and such, or beverages, wines, ciders and drinks. In short, le gourmand-gourmet”. Enough to please all palates, including the most discriminate. TBL restaurants will feature more duck dishes all through September.
There will be numerous booths, finger-licking good morsels, samples of cider, wine and fruit juice, and an array of picnic tables where visitors can eat comfortably next to the Mill Pond dam. Last year more than 4000 people invaded the venue and raved about its convivial atmosphere. As for exhibitors, they gave the 2016 edition a rating of 9.2 (on 10), a very high score by any standard.
Town of Brome Lake and Brome Lake Ducks have teamed to sponsor this popular two day event from 10am to 5pm daily.
