The Montreal Old Port has released its summer 2023 program, a long list of activities, spectacles and events to draw visitors to the sprawling waterside attraction. Among them, and starting this Wednesday, July 19, is the return of the Grand PoutineFest, a roving troop of food trucks offering unique takes on the beloved Quebec folk dish.
