Take the subway!

The number of parking spaces is limited at the Parc due to the Enhancement and Development work. It is therefore strongly recommended you take the subway to get to Parc Jean‑Drapeau.

Circuit Gilles‑Villeneuve closed

July 25 to August 20, 2017

The Circuit Gilles‑Villeneuve will again be accessible to pedestrians and cyclists on August 21. During the closure of Circuit Gilles‑Villeneuve, cyclists and pedestrians that want to get to Jean‑Doré Beach will have to take the Route Verte or the free 767 shuttle from the Jean‑Drapeau subway station.

Aside from the exceptional closure on Saturday, August 19, the South Shore Bike Link and the Route Verte on Île Notre‑Dame will remain open throughout the summer season.

Aquatic Complex closed for the 2017 season

January 1st to December 31, 2017

Due to construction work near the Aquatic Complex, it will be closed to public and athletes for the 2017 season. Swimmers will still be able to come enjoy the water at Parc Jean‑Drapeau this summer at Jean‑Doré Beach.

Celebrating modern-day Montréal

The Week-ends du monde (WEM) festival, a large family and people-gathering event celebrating modern-day Montréal with its many components, is held every year at Parc Jean-Drapeau. WEM visitors will be taking part in the festivities and will again be able to see Montréal's outstanding cultural diversity.

This event is a unique opportunity for various groups, organizations and artisans to perform and display their talents in front of the public in a friendly setting. It's also a unique showcase for the many cultural projects with which contemporary Montréal abounds.

This document describes the general terms and conditions for eligibility to the WEM program, which provides structural support to promoter organizations and their activities in order to maintain, support and develop the events staged by the cultural communities of Greater Montréal.

Mission

WEM offers Montrealers of all origins an attractive showcase that allows them to celebrate and share with the entire population their culture and traditions through music, dance or culinary discoveries. WEM also strives to blend the city's cultural diversity into one same event.

Objectives of the program

  • Provide the population with accessibility to cultural events in the Greater Montréal area;
  • Support the production of festivals and events that promote and give exposure to the diversity of cultural expression;
  • Promote a closer intercultural relationship and dialogue aimed at combating exclusion, discrimination and racism;
  • Participate in the cultural development of the arts, popular traditions and the future generation.

Important notice

The size of the Week-ends du monde site, which was moved to Île Notre-Dame in 2017 because of the Enhancement and Development Project work, is smaller. Unfortunately, the temporary site isn't able to accommodate as many people as the previous editions of the event. Thus, the number of communities represented and the number of artists and concessions has also been reduced.
