Les Jardins Gamelin, end the summer with a splash

Suzanne Laliberté

Suzanne is passionate about everything “art” in Montréal, especially art forms that break boundaries like experimental dance, literature, design and visual arts that challenge norms and the timeless art of architecture, so often undervalued in the Americas. When she’s not writing, she can be found sipping an Earl Grey or a local gin at a favourite neighbourhood hangout.

Kick back and relax in the Jardins Gamelin’s cool and creative green spaces which, until September 26, will feature cultural shows, noonday music concerts and lively 5 à 7s for everyone as well as fun-filled weekends for the whole family.  

BAnQ sort de ses murs!

Tuesdays, starting at 1 p.m.  

BAnQ specialists will be presenting an array of documents that testify to the history of the neighbourhood around Place Émilie-Gamelin. This is an ongoing activity on Sainte-Catherine Street, thanks to an exhibition presented by comic artists and illustrators who use humour and colour to put a modern-day twist on archival records.

Sentier Urbain

Wednesdays, 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.  

Sentier Urbain is hosting exciting workshops on environmentally-responsible development, environmental awareness as well as neighbourhood beautification and social integration initiatives. Urban and native flora, urban agriculture, kitchen gardens, butterflies, mushrooms as well as hydroponic culture will be some of the many subjects on the program.

Noonday concerts

Thursdays, 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m.  

Bring your lunch and leave work behind during Les midis concerts, pop-up shows that you can enjoy while you sit and chill on your break.

Ce soir on danse

Fridays, 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  

Kick the weekend off with Ce soir on danse, and enjoy performances and DJ shows set to an up-tempo beat. Magical evenings guaranteed!
