Montréal en Lumière & Nuit Blanche
When: February 18 – 28, 2021
The full schedule will be out in February, but the famous wintertime festival plans to come back in 2021 with a mix of virtual and in-person events.
The last festival we've heard from is Piknic Électronik. A spokesperson told MTL Blog that an announcement is coming as soon as possible.
But don't expect a typical Montreal Pride Parade complete with vehicles, floats, dancers, and all the usual festivities. According to a press release, the current health context does not allow for a traditional parade.
However, Montréal Pride says holding a march "returns to the roots of the Pride movement by handing back the public space to participating communities," specifically focusing on amplifying the voices of diverse sexual and gender communities that were "made close to invisible" during the pandemic.
"The first demonstration in favor of the Montréal 2SLGBTQI+ communities’ rights was held in 1979, organised by the Pink Brigade [...] with 52 marchers participating," said Jean-François Perrier, interim director of the Montréal Pride Festival, in a statement.
"It is therefore with great pride that we confirm [...] a unifying activity open to all that will allow the advocacy and community aspects of the festival to shine."
The Pride March will take place on August 15 and will depart from Jeanne-Mance Park at 1 p.m.
"Overall, the City of Montreal saw 990 $1 million–plus residential real estate transactions," including condos, attached and single-family homes, "in the first half of 2021, an increase of 112% from the same period in 2020," the report states.
Though sales in $2 to $4 million homes in Montreal rose by 138%, sales in $1 to $2 million homes made up the largest share of sales overall, with 807 Montreal properties sold in the first half of 2021, Sotheby's says.
Sales in properties over $4 million more than doubled between 2020 and 2021 — just six were sold in the first half of 2020, compared to the 14 properties sold in the same period in 2021.
The report said that according to the Quebec Professional Association of Real Estate Brokers, on average, selling a residential property in Montreal during the first quarter of 2021 took approximately 44 days, compared to the 68 it took to sell a home less than a year prior.
