As you know, the month of June is the kick-off time for the festival season in Montreal. Pretty much every single weekend until the month of September, streets all around the city will be temporarily shut down to make way for food carts, performers, and vendors of all kinds.
One neighbourhood that has yet to have their own street festival is Hochelaga-Maisonneuve. But not anymore! This year and for the first summer ever, this charming Montreal neighbourhood will hosts it's very first sidewalk-street festival!
Just head to Pie-IX Metro station and Promenades Ontario where this street will be closed for only pedestrians from June 2nd to 5th.
Once you arrive you will be able to find the street fest and things you typically expect food, drinks, vendors, and a big crowd, but also unique live performances that will go on into the night.
The Street festival is 100% kid and pet-friendly and you can access it for FREE, all you have to do is get there. And it takes no more than 20-minutes from downtown Montreal. This is a great way to visit and support new neighbourhood and community, not to mention get to know Montreal a little bit better.
