SOME LOGISTICAL DETAILS

The farm is located at 2 Chemin de la poste de Boston in Frelighsburg, QC.
To limit the numbers of cars and facilitate parking we invite you to carpool to the event. We created a Facebook group Covoiturage Week-end Champêtre Oneka 2019 so that people who can offer or need a ride can get in touch and make arrangements.

Please note that dogs are welcome as long as they are kept on a leach.

The site is smoke/vaping free. A smoking area will be arranged.
