Montreal's Italian Festival Begins In August

Montreal's renowned Italian Week, now known as ItalfestMTL, is just around the corner and it's bringing back in-person festivities.

This year marks the 28th edition of the popular festival and will bring all the best food and music from local Italian culture for three weeks of events.

"After last year's innovative shift to virtual, we intend to have an open mind by confirming online programming broadcast on our website and social networks," Antonio Sciascia, President of italfestMTL, said in a press release.

"Nevertheless, we will offer events on the ground so that our festival-goers can share the joy of being together, even if in a reduced way."

In addition to virtual concerts and comedy shows, ItalfestMTL invites people to in-person activities while respecting the health measures.

ItalfestMTL is from August 6 to August 22.
