Eat, Drink and Sleep Cook with our Chefs

Get ready for an entire weekend of taking things too far. Viamede’s regular dinner party, The Gathering, has long stood for culinary debauchery. These seasonal events focus on an over-the-top gourmet dinner spiced up with a liberal sprinkling of local wines and beers.

We are proud to launch the next step in culinary craziness with the Weekend Bender – an entire weekend of taking things too far. Chef Jay Nutt has called in ingredients from all over the province to bring you an unprecedented weekend:

60 tickets, 5 meals, new friends, and one hell of a memory.


The lineup:
  • Friday evening Dinner Reception with live cooking stations and bar – watch the team cook your dinner.
  • Saturday Open Kitchen – hang out with the Chefs as they prep for dinner and make you lunch. This is your chance to get your hands dirty!
  • Saturday On Tap – hike in the woods and learn how to tap maple trees for that sweet, sweet sap.
  • Saturday night – The Gathering 9-course dinner extravaganza
  • Saturday night join the After Party (be prepared – it goes late. Bring a musical instrument)
  • Sunday Recovery Brunch and late departure
Just for you:

We’re throwing our kitchen doors wide open for this event. Feel free to wander in and chat with the chefs, watch them prepare your meals, and even join in if you want. You’ll get the inside scoop on where we source our ingredients, learn a few tricks, and not to mention party with the Viamede team and friends at our late night after party.

You didn’t think we’d forget about the food, did you? We’ll treat you to the most incredible 9-course meal of your life, each one paired with an exclusive beer or wine from across our beautiful province.

We at Viamede Resort value the privacy of all our guests and friends. That’s why in addition to a lock on the door of each guestroom, we have detailed how we use any information we receive.

Oh—and before we go any further—we’ll just let everyone know right off the bat that we comply with current Canadian privacy legislation.

1) What kind of information do we collect?

There are two different types of information that we collect: personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and non-personally identifiable information (“Non-Personal Information”).

This might sounds complicated but it’s fairly straightforward.

Personal Information

We are a resort and people come visit, book rooms, and enjoy gourmet local food all of the time. As a result of these exchanges, we end up collecting some personal information—which is usually voluntarily given—that includes things like:

We take this information very seriously and only use it to facilitate your stay with us and to keep you in the loop should you wish.

Non-Personal Information

Through your interactions with us, our website and analytics platforms, and through our advertising partners, we may collect information that cannot be used to identify who you are. This type of information that may be collected are things like:

2) How do we collect information?

We collect this information in a few different ways.

When you provide us with information in making a purchase.
Fairly straightforward. You book a room, we receive personal information.

When you sign up to our e-mail list.
If you sign up to receive updates, we end up with a bit of your personal information. With your permission, we send you special information and you can decide to opt out at any point.

When you communicate with us.
When you reach out by e-mail, social media or by hand delivered letter, we may keep those for our records.

Information we automatically collect.
Like most websites, our services may incorporate fancy things like “pixel tags” and “cookies” which allow us to track actions and serve you information about our products and services. All of these collect Non-Personal Information.

3) How is the information used?

Personal Information could be used to:

4) What about Non-Personal Information?

From time to time, we use third-party advertising companies to serve you ads when you visit our website. They may use Non-Personal Information about your visits to this and other websites to provide ads about goods and services that are of interest to you. If you would like more information about this wizardry or to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies you can look here.

5) What else?

We want to make sure you enjoy your time with us and that your information is protected. Personal Information will only be used or shared when necessary and we would never sell you out by giving your information to third parties without good reason.

Unsurprisingly, we reserve the right to update our privacy policy at any time. When that happens, we will update the effective date at the top of this page so that you know.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. We hope to see you around soon.
