After a yearlong hiatus, the Monkland Street Festival is back and revived as Imagine Monkland for this year’s street sale.
You can now get a combination of Pizza Pinoli, Lucille’s, Old Orchard Pub, and La Diperie ice cream all on the same street.
According to artsndg.ca, Monkland has teamed up with NDG Arts Week and NDG Business Association in launching Imagine Monkland. This year’s festival is geared towards focusing on Monkand as a small, local festival instead of as a huge, Montreal event.
Residents, merchants, and vendors are urged to pursue this year’s theme, monsters. The festival will host a parade to kick off the festival where restaurants, shops, and bars’ “monster” alter-ego will be showcased.
A parade, local bands, circus acts, children’s activities, and the giant street sale will highlight the Imagine Monkland festival. The festival is expected to host over 90,000 participants.
Participants looking to become a vendor, an artisan, a volunteer or hopeful bands and artists are asked to register at Arts NDG’s website before June 8.
Over 50 restaurant outlets and store boutiques will be set up along Avenue Monkland from Avenue Girouard to Avenue Harvard which will be completely closed off to motorists. The festival is walking distance from Villa-Maria metro and will feature bike locks available throughout the festival grounds.

Where: Avenue Monkland and Avenue Girouard – Avenue Harvard, NDG
