Up until 2014 the town hosted Quebec's annual summer cheese festival, which showcases many of the locally produced artisanal cheeses. In 2014 the festival was moved to Victoriaville. Warwick also claims to be one of the possible birthplaces of poutine (fries with gravy and cheese curds).
It is an industrial centre, with factories for agricultural machinery, washing-machines, overalls, cheese-boxes, and doors.
Warwick is located on Route 116.
