Montreal's Boulevard Saint-Laurent Is Shutting Down To Host A Massive Free Street Fair This Month

Boulevard Saint-Laurent, also called "The Main," is known for throwing massive block parties and hosting some of the summer's best activities. From Mural Fest to all the bars that crowd its streetscape, it truly is one of Montreal's go-to streets. 

To close out the summer, Boulevard Saint-Laurent is being shut down at the end of August for the BLVD – Boulevard Piéton Block Party! This huge FREE event is the perfect way to bid farewell to an amazing summer in the city. 

From Rue Sherbrooke to Mont-Royal Avenue, St-Laurent will play host to local merchants, fun and interactive activities, delicious food, and even a skateboarding competition! The BLVD - Boulevard Piéton is set to be huge!

Starting Thursday, August 29th and for only a few short days, Boulevard Saint-Laurent will become one of Montreal's biggest open-air markets. Every store along the boulevard will be out in full force, set up alongside the road offering spectacular sales on merchandise.  

The streets will be full of people discovering the best that the Main has to offer. Not only will there be vendors, but also super fun activities. This block party on Saint-Laurent is one of those can't miss events that marks the beginning of the end of the summer season.

Free games such as Bulle Soccer, a giant hamster ball, and even sumo suit competitions are the perfect way to blow off some steam after a long week! 

The best part of all these activities is that they're absolutely free! Everyone can take part!

Another incredible thing about this block party: how about a best trick skateboarding competition? That's right, Vans is sponsoring a best trick competition on the corner of Milton that's open to the public! The grand prize is $2,000! 

Along with the skateboard competition, Vans is also offering free skateboarding lessons to children. Who knows, you might see the next Tony Hawk! 

To top it all off, a mystery guest DJ will perform at what is set to be a fantastic event.
