It’s going to be an explosive summer with Montreal festivals

Montreal Festivals

High vaccination rates, plus the low number of COVID-19 cases, equals the return of summer fun in Montreal which looks to be filled with Montreal festivals.

The return of many of Montreal’s favourite artistic summer festivals, along with the introduction of 29 new unique cultural projects — which will run for a period of at least three days to as much as several months — signals the city’s gradual return to normalcy.

According to a report by CBC News, Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante commented that “this complementary programming to Montreal festivals and major events allows us to support three flourishing sectors of culture: namely events, the creative and cultural industries and the circus industry, while generating concrete benefits for artists and technical teams.”

These projects, which commence on June 21, include a collective garden by Indigenous artists, contemporary dance performances, a number of musical and art exhibitions, and a historic sites tour of Montreal’s LGBTQ+ community.

As well, there will be about 30 vacant businesses and shop windows that will transform into pop-up exhibitions, a relaunch of the Old Port that will take the form of circus-oriented programming that will be run by TOHU, plus an investment of nearly $2 million to five of the city’s major festival organizations, which are Pride Montreal, Just For Laughs, the Montreal International Jazz Festival, Festival Mode & Design, and Terres en vue.

And as of June 25, outdoor shows with unassigned general seating will resume for a maximum of 2,500 people; please take note that basic health measures such as physical distancing is going to be encouraged throughout all festivals and events.
