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 2017 and 2018 Week-ends du monde temporary site located on Île Notre-Dame is smaller than the site of previous editions. Therefore, the temporary site's capacity is lower than in previous years, which limits the number of communities, artists and concessions it can host.
