Montreal Embraces the Spirit of Diversity Powered by Loto-Quebec

Quebec is about to have exciting several weeks this summer with a myriad of live events, festivals, and more coming its way. Montreal is projected to once again welcome Week-ends du Monde for the 15th time in a row. Powered by Loto-Quebec, these special events are going to commence on July 6 and transform next weekend as well. These four days of celebrations allow many cultures and communities to represent their unique features and signature cuisine.

Loto-Quebec marks its 25th year of operation in the province and this calls for celebration lasting for several weeks. The Crown corporation is willing to offer its players and all residents of Quebec the chance to experience something new, as well as beloved festivals and open-air congregations over the following weeks. The next two weekends in Montreal are going to be dedicated to a festival with nearly two decades of history.

Week-ends du Monde Transforms Montreal

Week-ends du Monde will attract both locals and guests of Montreal for something exciting. For the first time ever, the congregation is going to take place at Espace 67 located in Parc Jean-Drapeau. This is projected to make access much easier and to accommodate more enthusiasts ready to dive into the vast possibilities it offers.

This congregation is a free one and everyone is welcome to make their way to the new location in Montreal. As many as 12 festivals will be integrated in the two weekends, letting diversity thrive. July 6 is projected to bring the official start of Festival du Jasmin tunisien de Montréal, the Montréal Salvadoran Festival, as well as the Mes racines mexicaines, offering the first batch of international experiences.

Sunday is about to teleport all individuals to Triniday, Montréal en harmonie, Île Maurice en Fête, as well as the 47th annual edition of the Festival péruvien de Montréal. The weekend is projected to be filled with music performances, various dancers groups representing their cultures, as well as food offerings that would make for a well-rounded weekend.

July 6 Greenlights Festival

Both weekends are scheduled to give green light to the events at 14 p.m. and fill Montreal with the international spirit all the way to 11 p.m. The second weekend is projected to bring six more locations diversifying the crows even further. If you are curious to learn more about the culture of Jamaica or Venezuela, July 13 is going to enable this.

Next Saturday is going to launch the celebration of Jamaica Day, Québec-Maghreb, and La grande fête – Venezuelan Festival on site of Espace 67. All of those are free and will allow artists to express their creativity and deliver it through special workshops sprinkled across the area. The last day of this cultural festival is going to be July 14.

Festival culturel du dragon de jade, Festival indépendance de la Colombie, as well as Festival cubain are scheduled to be the logical conclusion of this congregation. Loto-Quebec has teamed up with leading companies such as Parks Canada, the Montréal Impact Soccer School and TV5 aiming to elevate the two weekends on a whole new level.
