Montreal Is Hosting A Free Oriental Food And Music Festival This July

Lovers of Eastern food and culture, gather round because Festival Orientalys will be taking over Jacques-Cartier Quay next week! From July 23-26 everywhere from North Africa to China to Spain to Turkey to India and Japan will be featured at the festival, giving those of us over here in the west a chance to immerse ourselves in the culture.

The festival will feature performances on multiple stages, workshops, and of course some amazingly delicious delicacies from around the globe that will make your tastebuds smile. You can have your hands decorated in henna, take a music workshop, learn the art of Persian writing, or even have your makeup done. And best of all, it's all free!

If you're looking for somewhere to be next weekend that is guaranteed to be a great time with amazing food and even better entertainment that won't cost you a penny, Festival Orientlys is where you need to be.

Check out their Facebook page and official website for more information.
