Colourful city sights
Starting June 21, MURAL Festival is also a sight to behold along Saint-Laurent Boulevard on side streets, as artists create incredible outdoor urban art all summer – the festival also hosts high-energy online concerts, artist talks and more digital goodness.
Summer street life
Every summer, Sainte-Catherine Street is transformed into a pedestrian corridor for festivals, artwork and socializing – this year may look a little different, but you can still spot art installations and more surprises along the main thoroughfare all season. Meanwhile, in the Plateau, Mont-Royal Avenue becomes a pedestrian-only street all summer too, with open-air terrasses, art and more. And while this year's Fête nationale du Québec grand spectacle concert won't be outdoors this June 24, you can watch the live show online while you barbecue and raise a glass to Québec's diverse culture.
