Bedford has a wide range of activities, so everyone can find something that appeals to their respective interests. Pike River, which crosses the village, gives you the opportunity to do some kayaking in a tranquil setting. Many commercial establishments have set up shop on the river banks, making it a central part of town.
For anyone who’s into equestrian activities and country music, the annual Rendez-vous Country event enlivens the Adrien-Tougas public square in downtown Bedford. The equestrian centre’s participation in this event exemplifies its involvement in the local community. Horse-lovers will be in their glory, not only at the equestrian centre, but also at the annual agricultural fair. The many competitions held during the fair highlight regional know-how in the areas of farming and breeding. And youngsters are sure to smiling from ear to ear going on the many rides on the midway, and petting the animals, while the elder set will enjoy the many shows, competitions and demonstrations of farm machinery.
Last but not least, the more creative crowd won’t want to miss the Artists’ Open House, an event held every Thanksgiving weekend which showcases local artists and those that are outside the major urban centres. Over the course of the weekend, the participating artists open their doors to celebrate artistic creativity and originality.
Until October 10th, 2021, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (closed on Mondays).
