People at a Fair

There is always something to do in the Township of Alfred and Plantagenet!

Numerous festivals covering an eclectic range of interests take place throughout the year. Many play host to several hundred travel trailers and motor homes during their event. Our community calendar highlights local activities and events.

For naturalists and birders, the well-known Alfred Bog is an eco-system of national importance that features a 1,000-foot long trail allowing visitors to observe the animals, birds, plants and insects that live in this 4,200-hectare natural haven. The Bog is home to more than eighteen rare species!

The  Prescott-Russell Recreational Trail  runs across the Township. It offers a long distance cycling and walking path in the summer, and is an exceptional trail for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. The Municipality is criss-crossed by a well-developed snowmobile and all-terrain vehicle trail system.

The village of Alfred lays claim to the title of French Fry Capital of Canada. Home to many very popular chip stands, Alfred was featured in 2008 on the Radio Canada's show La petite seduction, whose host Dany Turcotte joins a Francophone media star to discover what make the chosen Francophone village special. In Alfred's case, its claim to fame is French fries.

Available accommodations for all tastes and budgets consist of motels, campgrounds, and bed and breakfasts.

The natural beauty of the Township draws visitors from neighbouring urban centres. The wide range of natural attractions and festivals available within the Municipality are turning tourism into a growing sector in the Township of Alfred and Plantagenet.
