Grand Prix on the Main
This year again, come to celebrate the Grand Prix on the Main! Scheduled this summer: 4 days of festivities, terraces open until 3 am and DJs to make you dance until the sun comes up! The Grand Prix on the Main is from June the 6th until June the 9th, from 10 am to 3 am between Sherbrooke and Des Pins (boulevard closed to traffic for the occasion).
The Grand Prix on the Main will be only a foretaste of what to expect this summer! From June the 13th to the 16ththe Mural Festival effervescence will invade the boulevard. MURAL will muster over 35 local and international artists over 2 km of open-air market on Saint-Laurent Boulevard, closed to traffic for the occasion. The festival will showcase the creation of near 20 unique murals which will redefine the Main’s image for the next year. Every night during the festival, a special event will be held that will enable attendees to gather in a different location in order to continue the creative celebrations.
As an international public art festival bound to the celebration of creativity and the democratisation of urban art, MURAL will transform for a week the Saint-Laurent Boulevard into a real open-air museum where local and international artists will unite their talents in the most creative manners.
An event not to be missed by the artists and their public, the Mix ‘Arts will offer you countless shows, music and artistic performances! From august the 232h to August the 25th, let’s finish summer on a high note on the Main!
