What to do in summer


The city explodes into action in summer, stirring up a non-stop international-level joyride of live music, comedy, art, cultural activities and fabulous food. The hot outdoors is the place to be in summertime, whether dancing with a sea of festival-goers, gasping at acrobatic circus performers, savouring gourmet fare from a food truck, kicking back on a restaurant's sunny terrace with a drink or picnicking alongside happy Montrealers in the park.
