Festival YUL EAT, presented by evenko, is proud to announce the return of the YUL EAT Gardens during three of the most popular festivals of the summer!
Like last year, festival-goers attending Osheaga, ’77 Montréal and Heavy Montréal, all taking place at Parc Jean-Drapeau soon, will have access to high-quality food in the YUL EAT Gardens zone.
Music lovers will once again get to enjoy signature dishes from 5 iconic Montréal restaurants. Each kiosk will be furnished like a small restaurant with a large terrace, where festival-goers can take a lunch break and grab a bite with some friends, while comfortably seated.
It’s already been three years since this Amherst Street establishment introduced its delicious updated Haitian cuisine, which is cooked with care and imagination by chef Paul Toussaint. Their acras, cod chiktay, griot, and whole fried fish quickly made their reputation, as did their rum “koktels!” On the menu: griot, grilled chicken, seafood skewers, ribs & more!
’77 Montréal: Friday, July 26, 2019
Heavy Montréal: Saturday, July 27 and Sunday, July 28, 2019
Osheaga: from Friday, August 2 to Sunday, August 4, 2019
Festival YUL EAT will take place from September 9 to 15, 2019 in the Quartier des spectacles.
