The Festival - June 28-July 7, 2018
Ranked as the world’s largest jazz festival in the Guinness World Records, the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal has been synonymous with a passion for music for nearly 40 years. Every year for 10 days, the French-speaking metropolis of North America becomes the venue where fans of all types of jazz-related music rub shoulders with aficionados of jazz in its purest form. All on a unique site designed to meet festival goers’ every need, right downtown in an area off-limits to car traffic! Montreal is without a doubt the true heartbeat of Planet Jazz!
And while you’re visiting Montréal
Montréal's renowned duality of Old World charm infused with North American energy lies at its very heart.
A shutterbug's dream, you could snap away at warp speed and capture a new story with every click. It doesn't matter where you go on the island; every neighbourhood is different and everyone stars in their unique way.
Montréal is as romantically traditional as it is cutting-edge innovative, as cosmopolitan dynamic as it is small-town friendly. And because of this diversity, there exists a vibrant population who collectively and confidently "live and let live"—and do it well.
Take Saint-Denis Street for example. On the first warm day of spring, Montréalers flock to the outdoor terraces en masse to celebrate winter's departure and lift their faces to the light like sunflowers.
Or summer Sundays on Mount Royal, where everyone gathers to let loose to the tribal beat of the tam-tams. Bohemian? Maybe. Uplifting? Definitely.
After spending some time here, you'll notice that without the complex mix of flavours—ethnicity, culture, language, ideas, cuisine, you name it—warm camaraderie and sheer joie de vivre, anywhere else just seems bland.
