As the weather heats up, the events never stop. This weekend is expected to bring some above-zero weather, so it should be fair to say that the winter season is officially coming to an end, and we can start looking ahead to a warmer Spring. Here’s a look at what the West Island has lined up for this upcoming weekend:
Marie Mai comes to Valleyfield
That’s right! One of Quebec’s biggest artists will be kicking off her 2019 tour with a stop in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield! After having recently appeared on The Launch on national television, Marie Mai will be bringing her talents around the province with a brand new show.
The concert will take place at the Salle Albert-Dumouchel on Saturday night at 8:00 PM. Of course, tickets do need to be purchased beforehand, and can be obtained through the Valspec website.
Crafts in Beaconsfield
Sticking with the arts, Beaconsfield will also be offering its residents to do some arts and crafts through their event “Crafty Library – Collage Art Canvas.” Children aged 6-12, along with their parents, are invited to the city’s library to create a collage on a canvas using only two materials: tissue paper and water.
This can be a fun event for young families to attend together! The event will take place this Sunday, March 17th, from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM at the Beaconsfield library. Find out more about the event on the city’s website.
Vernissage in Pointe-Claire
Embrace your inner cultural curiosity by attending Pointe-Claire’s Vernissage: Flowers and Monsters exhibition. This exhibition features two Montrealers, Ari Bayuaji and Hua Jin, who are originally from Indonesia and China respectively. They will entertain crowds with some “poetic dance of oppositions and harmonies in which nature sings with culture.” If you’re curious about other cultures or want to discover some new, traditional forms of art and dance, don’t hesitate to attend!
The event will be taking place this Sunday, March 17th, at 2:00 PM at the Stewart Hall Art Gallery, and admission is free! Find out more on the City of Pointe-Claire’s website.
Europe on the Cheap in Dorval
Are you dreaming of Europe? Imagining yourself strolling down Barcelona’s historic boulevards, swimming in Croatia’s pristine beaches or basking in the Roman Empire and all of its glory?
A trip to Europe can be the ultimate family vacation, but it can be a lot cheaper than you may think. This weekend, the City of Dorval has invited seasoned traveller Jennifer Doré Dallas to talk about how to visit Europe on a budget without missing a beat! The talk will be given in French, but there will be a bilingual question period.
The presentation will be given at the Dorval Library this Saturday, March 16th, from 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM. Find out more information on the City of Dorval’s website. Don’t miss out on your opportunity for a cheap and memorable vacation!
Have a great weekend!
