In case you haven't had a chance to check it our this year, this weekend will be your final chance to attend a Jardin Gamelin party.
The place that brought us parties, concerts, food-fests, BBQs, massive wall projections, giant net sculptured and a ton of excitement is ending the season with one of their biggest parties yet.
They're not only having a BBQ, they're having a "Festive BBQ". Not exactly sure what that is and they don't really mention it on Facebook so I'll just assume its a BBQ where the people seem slightly happier. (Hooray for assumptions)
Sentier Urbain will be holding their agricultural workshops where you can learn everything about growing plants, caring for them and even cooking and healing with them.
But that's not all, UQAM will also he holding a huge public farmer's market and there will be an outdoor Karaoke party so you can embarrass yourself in front of hundreds of strangers.
The party is this Sunday (Oct.4th). Hope to see you there!
Attention party animals: on September 11 from 1 to 3 p.m., Montreal's corgis and their owners will be gathering in a downtown park for a special day of fun and fluffy butts.
Organizer YATAI MTL is launching the pooch party after successfully hosting a Shiba Inu gathering in June as part of Montreal's first-ever Japan Week celebrations.
Among the highlights of the Shiba gathering was the presence of "Kombu the Corgi" an adorable fellow "who tried to infiltrate" the Shiba-only affair and underlined the need for a corgi party, reads the invite.
To keep the event from being too overcrowded – as it's sure to be the social event of the year for Montreal's corgis and their people – guests must pre-register and organizers are only disclosing the venue a few days in advance.
Admission is free and the event will be postponed until September 12 in case of rain.

Starting on June 30, new "large-scale garden installations" will be put up along avenue du Mont-Royal to "provide citizens with a summer experience tinged with slowness and gentle living, right in the heart of the Plateau," according to a press release shared with MTL Blog.
"With evocative themes such as La Roseraie, Le Jardin nourricier and Le Bosquet des lucioles, relaxation and appropriation zones, meeting points and a program of activities, make up an inspiring and original path for residents and Montrealers," the Société de développement de l'avenue du Mont-Royal said in the release.
Shauit, Scott Sinquah, the Buffalo Hat Singers, Moe Clark, Geronimo Inutiq, Corey Diabo and Jeremy Dutcher will all be performing.
The event is set to take place at Cabot Square in downtown Montreal, which has been a gathering place for Indigenous people for several decades and is home to the Roundhouse Café, one of Montreal's only Indigenous cafés.
Spectators will have to sit alone and remain seated at all times, and mask-wearing is mandatory. No re-entries are permitted after you've entered the concert site.
The concert is free, but reservations are required through Eventbrite or at the reservation tent on-site. The event will also be streamed live on Facebook.
