As we enter the meat of the summer months, it’s time to start enjoying each and every moment before September arrives. That means it’s time to get out and enjoy all the city has to offer for the rest of the summer. Luckily, there are many fun things to do around the city in August, like the Montreal First Peoples Festival.

While the Quartier Des Spectacles is the main summer spot for free events and shows all summer long, that is one event that you don’t want to miss out on.
