The best summer events in Montreal

Montréal knows how to have a good time, any time of year. But when summer hits the city, the festival and event scene really starts to heat up, too. Our team wants to help you make the most of every minute. Here are some of the best summer events in Montréal.


Get ready for one of the most vibrant celebrations on the calendar. Carifiesta is a bold and bright celebration of Caribbean culture. Come out and play! The parade will run along Rene Levesque Boulevard on Sunday, July 6th and is something to see! The costumes, the colourful feathers, the culture, the celebration. Don’t miss it!

Festival of India

The diversity of Montréal means that you can tour the world, without wandering far from home at The Shaughn. The 41st annual Festival of India comes to Jeanne-Mance Park from Saturday, July 6th to Sunday, July 7th. It all kicks off with a lively parade along St Laurent (at the corner of Milton) and then the celebrations take over the park, with over 12,000 visitors expected over the weekend. 

Just For Laughs

If you’ve had a bit too much sun, and you’re ready to head inside and laugh your head off, you’re in luck! The legendary Just For Laughs festival returns to Montréal from July 10th to 28th. It’s the largest international comedy festival in the world and attracts the biggest names. This year, catch Trevor Noah, Nick Kroll, Wanda Sykes, Howie Mandel and many more, at venues across the city. 

Our team hopes that these fun events help to make your Montréal summer even more magical.
