There are soooo many things to do in Montreal all year long, and this is really true in summertime. The short(ish) summer in our city makes our festival season jampacked from start to finish, so get on board to know what’s going on.
Osheaga, one of the most respected music festivals on the continent, is going to be here soon. But, this year, there is a huge list of banned items from Osheaga.
