It's a big festival for students! 🥳
The start of the school year doesn't have to be a bummer. La Grande Rentrée is taking over Montreal's Quartier Latin from September 8 to 10 so students can have one final wild time before getting down to business.
You can expect three evenings of fun and free-to-attend activities, including music shows, dance performances, outdoor film screenings, theatrical improvisations and an art exhibition.
The event will kick off at 6 p.m. on September 8, starting with a big party at the Jardins Gamelin alongside guest DJs Ian Jackman, Shaydakiss and Karaba.
Over a dozen bars will stay open this weekend until 6 a.m. during a frstival for students! 🍻 #mtl #mtlblog #montreal #quartierlatin #mtltiktok #quebectiktok #montrealbar #mtlbars #mcgill #mcgilluniversity #concordia #uqam #udem #froshweek #frosh #narcity

A spokesperson for the Quartier des Spectacles confirmed to MTL Blog that the city will exceptionally allow alcohol service until 6 a.m. as well.
The festivities will end on September 10 with jam sessions by bands Kumpa’Nia, Le Bloco and Zuruba. The artists will walk from rue Saint-Denis to rue Sherbrooke, giving Montreal some carnival vibes for the night.
