Presented by YES Employment + Entrepreneurship, a non-profit that provides English-language support services to Quebec job seekers, entrepreneurs, and artists, What The Pop! will highlight more than 50 emerging artists over the course of a month.
The best part is all proceeds go directly to the artists, each having had sales and marketing training before the event so they can make the most of it. Pretty amazing considering the year these artists have had!
Admission is free, and the chance to see these spectacular artists doing what they love best is absolutely priceless.

Why You Need To Go: Support local artists at one of the coolest events of the summer.
The Greenhound Canada Foundation, an ecological advocacy group, will be hosting this free-to-attend market at Leaves House Café McGill from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting on September 18.
This series of markets is "part of Greenhound Foundation's campaign to support mental wellness and community connectedness through plants and nature," according to a press release shared with MTL Blog.
The funds raised from the market will go towards supporting community projects and the development of a "healing garden" in Montreal.
The market this weekend will host creators such as Les Filles Plantées, Ivkaforest, MTL Creation Boutique, MTLA Studio, Soft Earth Forest Therapy, and desputeaux+aubin (creators of Caillou). There will be something for everyone!
