First edition of Harvest Day

ROSEMÈRE, Friday, August 23, 2019 – The Town of Rosemère is pleased to invite the public to its first annual Harvest Festival on Saturday, September14, in front of the town library.

A full lineup of activities is planned, kicking off with a public market featuring a number of local agricultural producers. The festivities will also include various family-friendly activities and live performances, as well as a medley of food trucks as of 1p.m.

“Harvest Festival is a noteworthy addition to our community calendar,” said Mayor Eric Westram. “Besides offering a fun-filled program, the event was created to collect fresh fruit and vegetables and non-perishable goods for Moisson Laurentides. So why not enjoy yourselves and give back to the community at the same time? Take advantage of the entertainment, activities and food trucks on site and help us gather food for people in need.”

Honey harvesting workshop

There will be a honey harvesting workshop held in the library starting at 10:30a.m. The Town’s bees have been buzzing away all summer long in their hives at Hamilton House– and now is the time to reap the rewards of their hard work. The honey will also be used to make a variety of products that will be sold at the Town’s traditional holiday market, with proceeds going to Les Petits Plaisirs, a community organization providing respite care.
