About Festivals in Montreal

Montreal is never dull or boring, because there's always something happening there. Montreal events go from Igloofest in January to the Grain de ciel kite festival in summer to the Festival du monde arabe in fall to Christmas celebrations in December.

Montreal music festivals attract audiences and performers from all over the world. Whether it's the Montreal Chamber Music Festival, the Festival Nouvelles Musiques, the Montreal International Classic Guitar Festival and Competition, the Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville, the Montreal International Jazz Festival, or the Montreal Electronic Groove, there's something for everyone. FestiBlues has blues music, the OFF Festival de Jazz has jazz, the Bach Festival has classical music, and M for Montreal showcases an eclectic variety of musical genres.

Festivals in Montreal celebrate Canada's multicultural heritage, like the Montreal Highland Games, Festival du monde arabe, Kahnawake Pow-Wow, Nuits d'Afrique, Matsuri Japon, and the St. Patrick's Day parade. There are book festivals like the Anarchist Bookfair and Festival international de la littérature. There are dozens of film festivals: Montreal World Film Festival, Image + Nation, Fantasia Film Fest, International Black Film Festival, Festival du nouveau cinema, Vues d'Afrique, and more. St. Jean-sur-Richelieu Hot Air Balloon Festival always soars.
