When spring arrives, almost every Quebecer thinks about the sugar shack season. The little ones think about the amount of maple sugar they will be allowed to eat that day, the adults think about the delicious food and the good times with family and friends. We have gathered several sugar shacks in Montreal and its surroundings. Psst, you have permission to try more than one, considering that you can enjoy it only once a year.
Un Chef à l'Érable
For a second year, Chef Hakim Chajar, owner of Miel in Pointes-Saint-Charles, will surprise us with a revamped sugar shack feast full of flavour. Un Chef à l’Érable takes place at La Scena, this charming room located in the Old Port of Montreal. From March 15th to April 14th, you can experience an exceptional sugar shack meal, which has become a major event during the maple season in Montreal. Reserve your place now so you don’t miss your chance to try it.
Organized by the Verdun SDC to promote the effervescent neighbourhood of Verdun, the 9th edition of La Cabane Panache et Bois Rond will be held from March 21st to 24th.

Food kiosks at very affordable prices, bars to warm you up, maple syrup taffy on the snow, games for young and old, and shows that will make you dance are waiting for you during this weekend in March! No need to go far, the Cabane Panache et Bois Rond offers you the best sugar shack right here in Montreal.
