But, all these new regulations didn't stop people from having a good time. Nelly Serandour-Amar, an employee at MTL Blog, described her experience by saying, "This was my first concert since the beginning of the pandemic and even though it's not your 'typical' Osheaga, being back in a festival felt so nice. You could feel the energy from the musicians and the crowd which was so contagious. The overall festival felt very safe with it being a fully-vaccinated environment!"
Address: Various locations throughout the city and online, including Cinéma Banque Scotia
Why You Need To Go: The festival, which aims to "foster relations between China and Canada," kicks off in Montreal with Saving Chinatown, a short documentary about the threat of gentrification and anti-Asian racism Montreal's Chinatown and Asian community have experienced as a result of COVID-19.
Address: Barranco MTL - 4552, rue Saint-Denis, Montreal, QC

Why You Need To Go: Ring in October with Oktoberfest at one of Montreal's go-to microbreweries for European-inspired beer. To mark the occasion, they've also added German snacks to their menu: sauerkraut, Bratwurst, traditional pretzels and more.
