The season of sunny park chillings is almost done--but the party ain't over yet. This Saturday, Elementality invites you to celebrate its 2nd anniversary at their Elementakiza: Hip Hop You Don't Stop event in Girouard Park featuring rap and DJ guests, graffiti competitions, bboy shows and three kinds of crazy-delicious taco!

For art-lovers, Montreal's wildest artist collective MTL ZOO will be spraying up trucks for a graffiti competition with a $300 prize, and leading a stencil workshop for kids. And dancers, there will be urban dance competitions for women and men with $250 and $500 prizes, as well as a DJ roster that includes Fatsak, Benny Lava, and Frank Blvd.
The event runs 12 p.m - 8 p.m. at Girouard Park, corner Sherbrooke and Girouard, with different start times for each section. For more information, check out the Facebook page.

You might not think of spending your Friday night at a zoo—but what about one with DJs, drinks, live painting, and some of Montreal’s most creative animals?
This Friday night, the MTL ZOO arts collective invites you to walk on the wilder side of art at their latest show at Le Divan Orange. The group of illustrators, painters, sculptors, installation and graffiti artists has promoted the city’s next generation of talent since its founding in 2012. One thing they all have in common? They all know how to party.
A mash up of artistic disciplines set to the rhythm of Montreal’s nightlife, MTL ZOO promotes its events through local hip-hop media Elementality, and will feature DJs Benny Lava (Illmask Crew) and Positive (M.O.S) at the event. But don’t let the fun mislead you. MTL ZOO is serious about art.
“Our events are a way to bring people together, but also to promote quality work. We want artists to get inspired by each other, and by mixing disciplines, come out of their comfort zone and grow,” says Fonki, whose own love for graffiti and aerosol art has led him to conquer walls from Montreal to Cambodia.
MTL ZOO’s flexible roster makes each event a pleasant surprise. This time, come watch some live painting and see art by Le Bonnard, Antoine Gaumont, Jonathan Robert, Emmanuel Perron, Dare2, Macs Mos, Garbage Beauty, Miss Teri, Bryan Beyung and FONKI.
