Montreal's Old Port Is Hosting A Massive Free Festival With Over 100 Interactive Activities This Summer

As spring reaches its peak, the Montreal summer festival calendar is slowly coming into focus. As the unofficial festival capital of North America, Montreal has a lot to offer during its few months of warm weather. Unfortunately, that packed summer schedule can be pretty bank-breaking for residents.

Thankfully, Montreal is also host to a multitude of free activities each month. And among the free summer festivals, Eurêka!, "Quebec's biggest celebration of science," stands out for its scope.

The sprawling festival, which serves to "[promote] the best of Quebec science," will host over 100 free, interactive activities for participants. 

This year, Eurêka! will return to the Montreal Old Port for three days between June 7th and 9th, 2019.

TL;DR Eurêka!, "Quebec's biggest celebration of science," will return to the Montreal Old Port between June 7th and 9th, 2019.

Coming off the success of the 2018 theme of robotics, "this year’s theme is 'On The Move,' an exploration of mobility and transport of the future," according to the website.

Montreal could certainly use advice when it comes to improving transit.

2019 celebrations will include:

  • "Over a hundred original interactive activities developed by science and technology enthusiasts"
  • "25 interactive lectures and shows"
  • "More than 60 creative hands on workshops and experiments"
  • "street shows, animations, exploits and completely crazy demonstrations!"

Details about the activities and spectacles are few. But stay tuned to the Eurêka website for forthcoming information!

"The Eureka! Festival will be held in the Old Port of Montréal near the Science Centre, between Alexandra Quay and Jacques-Cartier Quay."
