A FREE Gourmet Food Village Is Opening In Montreal This Summer

Montreal is known as one of the culinary capitals of Canada for good reason. With our incredible range of restaurants from all over the world, foodies flock to our city to experience the best of Montreal. 

Our festival culture is also bar-none. When you combine both food and festivals, the city can show off its two best features of the summer. That's exactly what you'll get with BOUFFONS!MTL.

BOUFFONS!MTL, the largest open-air gastronomy village in North America, is coming to Montreal for its 5th edition. From July 17th to July 28th, experience the best culinary creations from local chefs under the sun!

BOUFFONS!MTL will set up shop in the Quatier des Spectacles in the heart of downtown.

If previous editions are any indication, the festival will have a unique summer vibe with a sandy beach, boardwalk, chilling areas, picnic tables, umbrellas, free entertainment, and even a DJ!

Last year's edition of BOUFFONS!MTL was three times as large as the previous editions! You can expect the culinary experience to be diverse and incredibly tasty. 

Along with the food, visitors can enjoy wine bars, beer bars, cocktail bars, artisanal products such as cheese and charcuterie, and even a market garden. 

Local chefs will be showcasing their signature dishes throughout the whole event so be sure to visit often to get a taste. In previous years, celebrated Montreal chefs such as Martin Juneau and Jerome Ferrer presented their latest creations along with an assortment of other well-known local creators.

From Italian to Vietnamese and from the meatiest to the veggiest of foods, there will be something for everyone at BOUFFONS!MTL. 

Along with incredible food and the chance to meet celebrity chefs, BOUFFONS!MTL has also held a slew of free events. DJs provide tropical sounds for the summer vibe and Zoofest, which is part of the Just For Laughs Festival, typically showcases upcoming comedians. 

Last year, there were more than 20 local food trucks on-site, each one showcasing their take on a Quebecois classic — poutine. BOUFFONS!MTL is the can't-miss gastronomic event of the year!

You better have a big appetite between July 17th an July 28th because there's no way that you can miss BOUFFONS!MTL.


WHERE: Quartier des Spectacles

WHEN: July 17th to July 28th, 2019
