From admiring Canada’s tallest Christmas tree to an exhibit of amazing artifacts, here is everything you need on your social calendar today.
What: Canada’s tallest (and perhaps also skinniest) Christmas tree was unveiled in Place des Arts only a few short days ago. Covered in sparkly lights, the tree can be seen for miles in any direction and is surely a welcome addition to the city’s gorgeous holiday decor. See it for yourself and take an Instagram pic!
Where: Place des Arts
What: The first major exhibition dedicated entirely to Quebec archaeology, Fragments of Humanity features over 350 artifacts and tracks 50 years of archaeological discovery in the province. Combining items from museums all over Quebec, the exhibition highlights the history of the region through each individual artifact. We promise you’ll never look at Montreal the same way again.
When: Until January 8, 2017
What: Music, good vibes, and connection. Join Rosewood one more time this year as the house band, Crawdaddy, get rolling at 9 pm and then it’s open stage for anyone! Come a bit early to have some amazing food from their kitchen from the very talented Chef Colin Griffin and enjoy a fun night of music!
When: December 6
Where: Rosewood, 60 rue St-Jacques, Montreal
What: An international event, The Grand Balcony, inspired by Jean Genet’s The Balcon, is a major exhibition comprised of 150 works of art created by 50 artists across the globe. For a sneak peek of what to expect, one of the exhibit’s featured artists is Kerry James Marshall, an American artist whose work explores the representations of African Americans in society, culture, and art history. He created portraits, interiors, nudes, and landscapes for The Grand Balcony.
When: Until January 15, 2017
Where: Montreal Museum of Fine Arts
What: Make your way down Mont-Royal Ave for this traditional torchlit walk. Following a Christmas sleigh, this event attracts nearly 10,000 people each year. Better yet, it culminates in Christmas in the Park, which features an enchanting holiday village filled with activities and treats for the whole family.
When: December 1-24
Where: Avenue du Mont-Royal Est
