So, how's your summer been so far? I don't know about you, but I'm a huge fan of festivals and watching artists put on a good show in front of a wild crowd. Sure, everyone knows that in-person festivals will eventually come back, but that doesn't mean Montrealers miss them any less.
DoorDash has come up with the great idea of bringing the party spirit back home by helping you create your own Festival of Flavours. Even without huge outdoor celebrations, you'll still be able to enjoy festival food on the stage of your choice (aka your favourite spot in the house or yard).
This interactive map will help you discover an amazing lineup of local flavours to replace your classic nachos while listening to music from ÎleSoniq. Pick your balcony, sofa or backyard and get ready to enjoy every second of your DoorDash order.
