The popular Week-ends du monde presented by Loto-Québec event is back at Parc Jean-Drapeau on July 4-5 and 11-12, from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m.!
A veritable trip around the world, Week-ends du monde, a free event since 2005, provides Montrealers of all origins with a showcase to celebrate and share their traditions through music, dance and culinary discoveries.
This year, a new family segment feature has been added to the program between 2 and 5 p.m. There are plenty of fun things for children: participatory activities, parades, entertaining shows on the Place des Traditions stage (subway exit) and an appearance by the circus performers Montréal Complètement Cirque. After 6 p.m., the site will be turned over to programming solely for adults; this will continue until 11 p.m.
Festivalgoers will be treated to the return of popular traditional events such as Jamaica Day, Colombia's National Day, Festival péruvien de Montréal, Festival Afro-Monde Ngondo, EUROFEST and the must-see Brazilian Summer Carnival. A diverse array of local and international artists will be performing on the various stages of the site. Added to the program are the free Saturdays of Piknic Électronik, whose musical repertoire will be tailored to the traditional sounds of the tropics.
The full program will be announced in mid-June.
