Another excuse to eat, drink and party outdoors is making its way into our beloved festival-ridden city this summer – and we couldn’t be more fired up.
Montreal is playing host to A Taste of the Caribbean Food, Music and Arts Festival June 26-to 28 from 11am-11pm.
The 16th edition will be heating up the Old Port’s Bonsecours Island with one huge outdoor bash to help explore the Caribbean islands through sights, sounds and taste buds.
If you haven’t partied Caribbean-style before, brace yourself: it gets pretty damn wild.
The festival will be packed with world-renowned artists ranging from reggae to Calypso, tons of orgasmic food and drink stations that will test your spice buds (can you say Jamaican jerk chicken?) and energetic live cooking shows from celebrity chefs.
Let’s not forget the star factor of the weekend being the legendary Trinidadian street carnival. This is the closest you’ll get to the Rio Carnival in our city.
Over 20 Caribbean nations including Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Cuba and many more are expected to participate and expose us to their island culture.
The festival is free to attend from 11am to 6pm daily. If you choose to visit after 7pm, tickets are 10$.
There is also a VIP treatment (150$) that will give you access to an open rum bar, free Caribbean delectables, and an elevated terrace for perfect concert and waterfront views all weekend long.
Mark those calendars. Your Montreal summer is about to get a lot more tropical.
