120 Montreal Festivals You Can Attend In 2016

Many cities around the world always claim to have the best festivals. There's Mardi Gras in New Orleans, Carnival in Rio, La Tomatina in Spain  and even the Day of the Dead in Mexico to name a few.

It's easy to have one big festival, but we here in Montreal can't handle going more than week without some kind of special event.

So I tried to find another place that has more than us, and it turns out we have a lot more than the average city.

Actually, we have over 120!

Some events already happened this year so they have been marked as "Over this year". If exact dates have not been announced for 2016 then only the month.
