After a 12-month hiatus the Brome Lake Duck Festival is back on its two webbed feet in Knowlton, September 20-22.

Rebranded Canard & Gourmandises, and run by Townships’ event coordinators Faire-Valoir, the three-day outdoor event on Lakeside will continue its winning tradition of offering food, craft, music and events for all ages, wrapped around a celebration of the famous Brome Lake Duck Farm and its primary feathered product.

More than 40 booths are expected to draw between 30,000 and 40,000 locals, tourists and foodies of all shapes and sizes, drawn by the beauty of the region and the chance to sample a variety of artisanal fare from the area, from BBQ wings to wines, ciders, maple products and things to wear and cherish.
