Sun or snow, Montreal is a happening city with tons of things to do. In addition to its reputation as being a party town with lively nightlife, the city is insanely busy with festivals and events no matter the time of year. Thanks in part to Expo 67, the International and Universal Exposition, in the swinging sixties, sites like Quartier des Spectacles and Parc Jean-Drapeau were designed to receive a heavy rotation of world-class festivals. There’s never a dull moment if you bone up on what’s happening with our list of the best annual events and festivals this city provides.
