The Village au Pied-du-Courant is a collective and festive space, born with the support of the community and urban initiatives. Since its first edition in 2014, the space has evolved to fulfill its core mandate, which is to be a welcoming gathering place for all citizens.

Many designers and architects collaborated to build a unique place with creative popup design that offers a variety of cultural activities.

The atmosphere changes from day to day. On Thursdays and Fridays, you can come and dance with your friends, there is a bocce ball court and you can enjoy live music with DJ or sip a refreshing cocktail. Whereas on Saturday and Sunday it’s more for family : marketplace, social dance and yoga workshops, and you can enjoy the landscape with a brunch. The pool and the sand will please young and old!
