Bonfires and fireside tunes are something we see very rarely in the city, but come the end of July, Montreal will be hosting its very own flaming musical jam when the JanSport Bonfire Sessions come to town. Taking place on the Lachine Canal, Montreal's Bonfire session will be an entirely free evening event with tons of tunes, drinks, and good times.

Two things make up the Jansport Bonfire Session: a gigantic bonfire underneath the stars + local musical artists. Three different acts will grace your ears while you sit by the fire, including the renowned Mac DeMarco. You can also look forward to free drinks (the non-alcoholic variety), s'mores and such to snack on, and a bunch of JanSport swag.
