Cranberry Interpretation Centre
The Cranberry Interpretation Centre (CIC) welcomes you each fall season at the Recreation Centre in Saint-Louis-de-Blandford, the cranberry capital, located in the Centre-du-Québec region. Working in collaboration with growers, the CIC organizes visits to cranberry farms throughout the region.
In a group, solo or as a family, you will be accompagnied by a guide who will inform you about production methods. You will also be able to take in the immensity of the vast fields as well as the biodiversity they offer. Boutique, tastings and exhibits complete this cranberry celebration!
To get there, you must take exit 235 from Autoroute 20. The CIC is located in the heart of the municipality, about 2,5 km from the highway. You can also have access via routes 162 and 165.
