Montreal Is Hosting A Massive Free Cuban Food Festival

Montreal is full of fun activities to do this summer and today, we've got a special treat for you all. For fans of Cuban food, music, and culture, this one's for you!

On Saturday, August 3rd, 2019, the Festival International Cubaneando is coming to Montreal's Parc Ahuntsic for its 9th edition! For over 10 years, the Cuban government has assured the promotion of Cuban culture by sponsoring various events around the world. 

Montreal's annual Cubaneando festival is an all-ages event of food, music, art, and culture that presents Montrealers with the best that Cuba has to offer. There's something for everyone at the Cubaneando Festival!

The Festival International Cubaneando is a free festival that is sponsored by the Cuban Government in collaboration with the City of Montreal, the Caisse Desjardins, and Bell Media. For one day and night, the festival takes over Montreal's east end in an outpouring of Cuban food and culture. 

Events taking place at the Festival Cubaneando include live concerts and DJs all day long playing the best and most authentic Cuban and Latino rhythms. 

There are plenty of events for all ages too! Dancers will be hosting Cuban dance lessons and will have many showcases throughout the day. Everyone can take part in the dance and music lessons with drum circles.

Another main attraction at the Festival International Cubaneando is a plethora of art installations showcasing local Latino and Cuban artists in Montreal. There will also be a photo exhibition. 

I think what everyone is most excited about is the incredible Cuban gastronomical delights that will be available.

If you only know what a Cubano sandwich is, you best go to the Festival Cubaneando to discover the myriad of flavours that the island nation has to offer. 

Of course, it wouldn't be a Cuban festival without an awesome array of rum-based cocktails that you can get totally lit on.

Montreal, get super stoked about the Festival International Cubaneando that's hitting Parc Ahuntsic this August!
