Rawdon: Proud of its Diversity and of Dorwin Falls Park

Rawdon is located in the Lanaudière tourist region. It is renowned for its picturesque sites and the smile and hospitality of its people. Geographically, it is located at the limit of the St. Lawrence lowlands and the Laurentian mountain range, in what was the Champlain Sea, more than 15,000 years ago. The municipality of Rawdon covers an area of approximately 180 square kilometers, some 70 km from Montreal.

It is at the heart of an important crossroads formed by roads 125, 337, 341, 348 that converge towards its downtown area. This makes it the main gateway to the Matawinie RCM in the heart of the Lanaudière region.

Rawdon - Carte Google Earth opti

Let's talk about these people. Rawdon is recognized as a community that gathers on its territory a part of the whole world. Indeed, more than 40 ethnic groups live together in Rawdon. The city, and by implication its citizens, is proud of this cultural mosaic that characterizes it and distinguishes it from other municipalities. In 2021, its population is of 11 748 people that we call Rawdonnois and Rawdonnoises. In summer, their number increases with the arrival of seasonal workers (about 3,000 people) and tourists (more than 2 million for the Matawinie RCM).

The Unsuspected Destination

Rawdon is a natural plateau at 500 feet altitude, bordered by forests, lakes, rivers, and waterfalls. However, it is surrounded by the Laurentians and Mauricie, two regions with strong identities that also benefit from an equally rich and inspiring environment. To interest people from other regions and other countries, Tourisme Lanaudière launched a seduction campaign in 2017 whose objective was to position the region as the "unsuspected destination," in order to demonstrate that it was a vacation option (and also, implicitly, a residence) of choice, but unknown.

Main Local Attractions

The tourist industry has an important impact on Rawdon and the Lanaudière region. The summer population of Rawdon and the numerous tourists who come to visit the region have convinced the municipality to invest in this sector. Rawdon has many tourist sites including a golf course, waterfalls, a municipal beach, worship sites, museums including the multi-ethnic interpretation center, Dorwin Falls Park, Manchester and Masson Falls, Magnan Falls (where there is a hydro-electric dam; hence the local nickname of "Power Falls") and a multitude of other such natural sites.

Rawdon has several camping sites, both developed and wilderness, and even a unique site of hebertism in the Arbraska forest. It is also possible to practice agro-tourism by visiting farms, such as the Arche de Noé and the Terre des Bisons. In winter, it is possible to ski at Ski Montcalm and to snowmobile on the region's trails.

Festivals and Shows

On the musical side, Rawdon is located in a region known internationally for its Festival de Lanaudière. This is the largest classical music festival in Canada and one of the largest of its kind in North America. It is held annually at the Fernand-Lindsay Amphitheatre in Joliette, which can accommodate 2000 people under the roof and 6000 on the lawns. Every summer, more than 60,000 music lovers participate in its various activities. Many artists and music critics who have seen all the other facilities of its kind in the United States are full of praise for the Lanaudière amphitheatre, especially for its acoustic success.

Rawdon, for its part, presents some notable festivals:• Rawdon International Folklore Festival: The purpose of this festival is to showcase local folk music repertoires;

  • Rawdon Winter Festival (commonly known as the Snow Festival): Annually, a festival is organized to promote winter activities;
  • Festival Intermonde de Rawdon: An annual festival to make known the mosaic of Rawdon's cultures;
  • The Eaushow: A sound and light show, featuring water.
  • Rawdon also offers summer theaters.
