Behind the scenes

Traditions of the World

Part of your summer evenings in Coaticook, Le Salon d’antan is your opening to a beautiful and old-fashioned game room.

An original and unique attraction in Quebec! The perfect activity before taking your shuttle bus to Foresta Lumina.

The animation company Jeux d’antan is at the roots of this new public attraction.

Faithful to its mission, Jeux d’antan helps you discover large traditional games from all around the world, chosen with care to create fun and bonding for 4 to 99 years old!

To engage further into the world of games, we offer you an immersive experience in an old-fashioned game room in the historical church building of  The Pavillon des Arts et de la Culture de Coaticook.

This exceptional site is open to you all summer for outings with family, friends or work colleagues!

Jeux d’antan

Authentic games
Our large games are designed in The Eastern Townships by wood artisans.
Old-fashioned atmosphere
The games return to their roots: assemble generations in laughter and bonding just like villages of old.
Participatory experience
The best aspect of the vintage parlour is that you are, dear visitors, the actors of the animation. The Salon d’antan is not a show but an participatory experience! For more pleasure, access to games is unlimited all evening!

A few words from the founder

“I have the opportunity to host this beautiful project in the church building of the Pavillon des Arts et de la Culture de Coaticook. It’s a location with history and character, just like our old fashioned games. It’s also a dream location for large groups and to offer services adapted to each generation.

The Salon d’antan is the perfect attract for visitors looking for originality, discovery, bonding, and authenticity. With this new age of individual games, this new experience of gaming brings together different generations and a timeless spirit acts upon children, teenagers, adults and elderly.

I look forward to introducing you to the fascinating games rooted in the traditions of the world in the comfort of this vintage parlour!”

  • “I really appreciated the games during the Comptonales last september. It is for that reason that I booked them for our corn festival next summer in St Damase. All the games I’ve tried were a real pleasure to play. I highly recommend them.”

    Yvon Blanchette • coordinator of the Corn festival of St Damase
  • ” The offer of old-fashioned games during the 5 to 7 at the Magog-Orford Chamber of Commerce seemed to please everyone, with no exception. I personally really enjoyed participating in the games. It’s an excellent way to socialize while having fun.”

  • “We were looking for animation other than inflatable games that can amuse varied age groups. We met our objectives with Jeux d’antan because young and old had fun during the two-day event! I recommend this games for all who want novelty for their event…wether it will be for municipalities, office parties or kid birthdays! The service is excellent, the games were set up on time…satisfaction 10/10. Thank you Ségolène and her team.”

    Julie Favreau, director• Rues Principales Coaticook
  • “The old-fashioned games offered by Ségolène send us in a fun and historical time! The attraction is two-fold. Ségolène explains historical roots of the games and  give us demonstrations. These games of wood and string plunge us into history and the pleasure of collective and solitary games. A big thank you!”
