Free Events as Part of the Journées de la Culture in Dorval


The 20th edition of the Journées de la culture will be held from September 30 to October 2, 2016. For the occasion, the City of Dorval is proud to offer the following activities.

Saturday, October 1: Circus Special

Kick off the fall season with a bang at a special story hour where children will discover the circus world, at 10:15 a.m., at the Dorval Library (1401 Lakeshore Drive). Space for this activity is limited, so advance registration at the Library is recommended.

This story time will be followed by a special circus act, Made in Kouglistan, presented by the circus company Throw2catch. The performance will start at 11 a.m. and will take place outside the Sarto-Desnoyers Community Centre (1335 Lakeshore Drive). Enjoy this fascinating experience: crazy, sophisticated, and with a breakneck pace, these three acrobats lack neither air nor energy to lead you to a wacky elsewhere! Strength, skill, and acrobatic exploits – the circus is in the spotlight! Beware: this funny show will take your breath away!

Sunday, October 2: Lecture on the history of the Lachine Rapids

Historian Denis Gravel will give a lecture (in French) titled L’histoire méconnue des rapides de Lachine, de 1535 à nos jours at the Dorval Museum of Local History and Heritage (1850 Lakeshore Drive), at 2 p.m.

Sunday, October 2: Open House

The Weavers’ and the Potters’ Guilds invite you to discover their creation techniques, at the Sarto-Desnoyers Community Centre, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
