Description


Gatineau RiverFest – July 28, 2018, 2-9PM

This festival will be a celebration of one of the municipality’s greatest gems – the Gatineau River! Enjoy a leisurely float or paddle down the Gatineau River from Wakefield to Farm Point, and there, settle into festivities with your friends and neighbors! Waiting for you at the Farm Point Community Centre will be a host of summer activities, kiosks and entertainment. This is a fundraiser for the Friends of the Gatineau River and Loisirs Chelsea Nord.

Live entertainment all day! For more information and updates: http://www.fog-arg.org/events

This is a rain friendly event! Please note that the events in Farm Point can be brought inside in the case of rain. In the case of thundershowers, we recommend that participants do not take part in any of the water-based activities and instead join us inside at the Community Centre!


Event location details:

Event location in Farm Point is in front of the Community Centre at 331 ch. de la Rivière.

Parking for the event in Farm Point is at 311 ch. de la Rivière (hockey rink/baseball diamond).

Note that the ch. de la Rivière will be blocked in front of the Community Centre (only emergency vehicles can pass) and so if you are coming from the North (e.g., Wakefield) you will want to drive down the Highway 105 and then turn left on ch. Saint Clément.
