The perfect countryside day trip

Got a few hours? Take a countryside road trip that will put you on a sensory journey through Prescott-Russell. Be in awe of the giant artworks painted on farm silos.
See the glowing fields. Smell the heat burning the long grass. Knock on a few producers’ doors to taste the counties.

The United Counties of Prescott and Russell are centrally located between Montreal and Ottawa.

Call for silos

What is Popsilos? A circuit that combines art and agrifood tourism in the Prescott-Russell countryside to celebrate Canada’s 150th.
Popsilos is looking for producers who have silos they’d love to have painted and be part of the Popsilos circuit. Many variables will be considered in selecting the silos that will be painted: proximity to major routes, proximity to other silos on the circuit,

accessibility of the site, silo dimensions, to name a few. If you think your silo is exceptional, we’d love to see it!
