15 Montreal Sidewalk Sales You Can Attend With Your Friends This Summer

I don't think I'm alone when I say that summer in Montreal is pretty much the best season. It's not so much the weather (but let's be honest, a big part of it is the weather)... it's more like a combination of everything.

So what is it that makes summer in Montreal pretty much a paradise for everyone and anyone? Well, lots of things! The weather (like I said, it's a huge part of what makes summer in Montreal so amazing!), the vibes, the events, the spots, and the sheer amount of fun things there are to do in Montreal make this city the place to be when the sun comes out and the temperature rises.

While it's true that we have a whole bunch of really fun events going on in the city, like outdoor concerts, music fests, food festivals, concerts, and more, one of my own personal favourite things to do is to chill, shop, enjoy live music, and food.

And one of the most fun events that combine all of these things - and more? Sidewalk sales, of course!

There are tons of sidewalk sales and street closures happening in Montreal this summer. Some are recurring - meaning they happen every year - and some are just starting off this year. Either way, they all promise to be a blast, so prepare for a super fun time no matter where you decide to go!

Oh, and PS, don't forget that the streets mentioned in this list will be closed to traffic during the sidewalk sales/fairs, so leave the car behind and walk these sales!

Montreal's Hidden 'Enchanted Alley' Is Back This Year & You Can Take Pics If You Find It

You can take your own photos or book a professional photoshoot!

There's a little bit of holiday magic in every nook and cranny of Montreal. Verdun's "Enchanted Alley" is back again this year off rue Wellington with a whole new setup.

While last year the alley took the form of a forest walk up to the charming façade of a log cabin, organizers opted for a cozy interior scene for the 2021 season. Visitors will now find a large (faux) fireplace complete with a Christmas tree and a big red chair.

Mayor Plante's Party Says Montreal Buildings Should Stay Shorter Than The Mountain

Ever wonder why Montreal is shorter than other North American cities?

You might have noticed that the height of buildings in Montreal is shorter than those in other North American cities. That's by design. And now, Mayor Valérie Plante's party, Projet Montréal, is committing to keep it that way.

"Since 1992, a consensus has existed in Montreal regarding the maximum height of buildings," the party wrote on Facebook. "According to this agreement, Montreal's constructions must not obscure the views of Mount Royal — and therefore must not peak higher than the mountain's highest level, which is more than 232 metres above sea level."

Calling all Montreal night owls looking for work! You may have heard about Heinz Ketchup moving production back to Montreal. Now, the Kraft Heinz plant in Mont-Royal — which also produces Kraft peanut butter and Kraft Dinner — is hiring 30 production operators to work the night shift.

You could earn $22.21 an hour without a degree or experience (but you do need a high school diploma). Plus, the plant promises a 15% raise each year for three years, so you'd be making $30 an hour in just a few years — and there's the possibility of getting an annual performance bonus.
