I don't think I'm alone when I say that summer in Montreal is pretty much the best season. It's not so much the weather (but let's be honest, a big part of it is the weather)... it's more like a combination of everything.
So what is it that makes summer in Montreal pretty much a paradise for everyone and anyone? Well, lots of things! The weather (like I said, it's a huge part of what makes summer in Montreal so amazing!), the vibes, the events, the spots, and the sheer amount of fun things there are to do in Montreal make this city the place to be when the sun comes out and the temperature rises.
While it's true that we have a whole bunch of really fun events going on in the city, like outdoor concerts, music fests, food festivals, concerts, and more, one of my own personal favourite things to do is to chill, shop, enjoy live music, and food.
And one of the most fun events that combine all of these things - and more? Sidewalk sales, of course!
There are tons of sidewalk sales and street closures happening in Montreal this summer. Some are recurring - meaning they happen every year - and some are just starting off this year. Either way, they all promise to be a blast, so prepare for a super fun time no matter where you decide to go!
Oh, and PS, don't forget that the streets mentioned in this list will be closed to traffic during the sidewalk sales/fairs, so leave the car behind and walk these sales!
