Head to Montreal this winter
With snow, sparkling light, mouthwatering food, outdoor activities and a cultural
scene that dazzles, you can’t go wrong this winter in Montréal. From MONTRÉAL
EN LUMIÈRE at the heart of downtown to Igloofest in the Old Port and more, see
how the city lights up with snow-inspired fun.
Luminous discoveries in the Quartier des spectacles
Don’t miss the fun of the Quartier des spectacles invites everyone to
bask in the light of Luminothérapie once again this year. Take a trip
back to your childhood with Impulse, a new interactive installation of seesaws
that glow and make music as you bob up and down. Or tour this vibrant quarter
and take in the impressive videos projections on major building façades.
MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE is a feast for the senses
Our much-loved winter festival of gourmet food and the arts promises more
one-of-a-kind surprises from February 18 to March 5. Savour the delights of featured
city Shenzheng’s culinary scene, soak up a diverse program of the cultural arts
and be dazzled by the fun and lights of MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE’s free outdoor site. And
don’t miss Nuit Blanche, a dusk-to-dawn immersion in the city’s
vibrant cultural arts scene on February 27.
Enjoy some serious chill with Igloofest
For its very celebratory 10th edition, Igloofest offers four weekends of electronic music
and dancing from January 14 to February 5 in Montréal’s Old Port. DJs from
far and wide will be whipping snowsuit-clad crowds into a frenzy on the quays
and keeping everyone warm. And for the sartorial-minded, Iglooswag invites you
to strut your funkiest, thowbackiest winter togs.
Lift your spirits with Old Montréal’s lighting
In the mood for an evening stroll?
Take some time to wander Old Montréal, whose unique lighting plan makes it even more enchanting when
night falls. Casting a new light on the unique architectural details of its colonial
buildings, cobblestone streets and public spaces, this designated circuit allows
everyone to revel in the ambiance of our historic city centre.
