Festival of India: Two Day Celebration in Montreal
Festival of India – This unique festival celebrating India will bring a touch of their beautiful traditions and culture into our lives. This will be the 40th Annual Festival of India (known as Ratha-Yatra) and will be taking place on July 7th and 8th in Montreal at the Jeanne-Mance park. Throughout the centuries and after many colonisers, the history and culture of India continues to inspire and attract the world. This festival is a way to not only include the Indian people living in Montreal, but also celebrate their beautiful culture and traditions.
The event will begin with a euphoric parade down St-Laurent street (starting at the corner of Milton street). As the parade moves on throughout the day, the celebrations will shift to the Jeanne-Mance park for two days of exciting festivities. Open to the public and free for everyone, the festival has brought together over 12,000 people in the past. There will be lots of vegetarian food available as well as yoga workshops, boutiques, an area for your children and much more. Happy festival season!
