Eurêka! Festival

Things to do at the Parc

The great science celebration is coming to Parc Jean-Drapeau! With the theme of Water in All Its States, île Sainte-Hélène is the ideal spot to play host to the many activities that are part of a widely diverse program.

The Eurêka! Festival offers three days of scientific discoveries with more 75 free outdoor activities for the entire family:

  • 27 interactive lectures and shows
  • More than 50 creative hands-on workshops and experiments to get fully immersed in science
  • And street shows, entertainment, scientific feats and truly extraordinary demonstrations!

A word of welcome

What a delight it is to be hosting the Eurêka! Festival at Parc Jean-Drapeau! Our park is a place where human ingenuity has been displayed time and again to make our two islands a truly unique spot in the world. It is entirely fitting that we are welcoming this outstanding event, which will mobilize and encourage young people to develop their spirit of curiosity and allow them to embrace the many revelations of science!

The Water in All Its States theme will be taking on every meaning of the word when festival-goers set foot on île Sainte-Hélène, amid the river and at the base of the Biosphere. To all our inquisitive visitors, Parc employees join me in wishing you a great festival: may you have a wealth of discoveries while you are here!

Many thanks to all the volunteers and artisans at this tremendous event who put their love of science to the benefit of the future of youngsters in the Greater Montréal area, and who foster their dedication to their schoolwork every year.
