History Goes to the Market

Saturday, August 17 and Sunday, August 18, 2019

The Mhist team is very pleased to present the sixth edition of History Goes to the Market. In partnership with Destination Sherbrooke and the Marché de la Gare merchants and market producers, the event kindles the effervescence of public markets from the turn of the 20th century offering theatrical storytelling, children’s activities, a game, information and photos of Sherbrooke from around 1900, and even a few products for sale at prices from yesteryear. All in the most festive and friendly atmosphere! More details to come for specific activities.
