QUEBEC RAINBOW GUIDE 2016-2017

MONTREAL: In a festive spirit

Montrealers are known for their festive spirit. Major sports and cultural events, lively international urban festivals or small community events; simply put, anything is an excuse to celebrate and share good times! 

While some cities roll up the sidewalk at night, Montréal rolls the sidewalk onto the street for days (and nights) at a time. And when streets get closed to traffic, outdoor cafés and restaurants pop up like palm trees across the pavement for you to roam, mingle with the locals and enjoy all the fun. Film, music, art, song, dance, community events – the list is as long as there are days in a year. Your days and nights in Montréal will be unforgettable!
