Montreal’s favourite street food festival, First Fridays, is coming to an end with a special BBQ blow-out.

If you haven’t been, now’s your last chance.

Montreal’s biggest street food event First Fridays with over 60 stalls, bars, and food trucks is wrapping up the season and going out with a big BBQ bang.

We’re talking about a next-level culinary line-up featuring some of the city's best restaurants and cheap eats with the grills fired up to the max. Bonus: the entry is free!

Time Out Tip: Parking can get ridiculous so grab the metro or a Bixi.

If you're taking the metro, the Olympic Stadium and its Esplanade can be accessed through an indoor corridor from the Pie-IX metro station. The entrance is located near parking lot P3 on Pie-IX Boulevard and is accessible via the Northwest exit of Pie IX Metro. Alternatively, at the Pie-IX metro exit, you can walk east on Pierre de Coubertin and enter through the second footbridge on your left.

Bixi-bound? There are three BIXI stations: On Pierre-De Coubertin Avenue, at the intersection of De la Salle Avenue; Bennett Avenue, at the intersection of Pierre-De Coubertin Avenue; Viau metro station, exit towards the east.
