POSTPONED: Salute to Spring ~ Bonjour Printemps

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED

The Museum of Work & Culture’s 21st Annual Salute to Spring/Bonjour Printemps event will take place on Sunday, April 5, at 1:30pm, and will celebrate Franco-American culture.

The day will include the MoWC’s eagerly anticipated 4th Annual Poutine Indulgence. Restaurants and food trucks from across the state will offer their take on the traditional Québecois dish of French fries smothered in gravy and cheese curds. This year’s event will feature two-time champion, Adelines: A Speakeasy Kitchen Bar, as well as past champions, Friskie Fries and Ciro’s Tavern, and past competitor Bywater, along with new participant Rhody Roots.

Additional entertainment will include performances and called dances by four piece Franco-American band Fleur de Lis, who will offer concerts at 1:30pm and 3pm.

There will also be presentations on the history and cultural significance of poutine. In addition, the event will include pastries provided by Wright’s Dairy Farm & Bakery.

The day will conclude with the MoWCs annual raffle, with a grand prize of a trip for two to Québec City donated by Conway Tours.
