Montreal's First-Ever Saint-Laurent Street "BBQ Festival"

Start dieting now meat lovers because you're about to get your fill of BBQ (just kidding, there's no such thing). Saint Laurent Boulevard is proud to announce the first ever BBQ Street Festival. From Monday June 8th until Wednesday June 10th, Saint Laurent will be closed to traffic to put the cultural diversity and the food of the neighborhood on display.

During the first 2 days of the event, the chefs of St-Laurent Street will each be cooking a different $5 plate so that everyone will be able to taste a variety of dishes without spending a fortune. On Wednesday, the cook-off begins and the chefs will be gathering at the parking lot on the corner of Prince Arthur to crown the big winner of Grill Saint-Laurent. David McMillan from Joe Beef will be the main guest judge. This festival also takes place under the MURAL Fest banner, so you have the chance to enjoy succulent ribs while you look at some beautiful street art. What could be better?

There will be a stage with live music as well as food trucks and a number of activities.
