May 3 2017, 6:38 pm

For those that are unaware, Montreal has been hosting an annual Bloomsday Festival since 2012. The McGill School of Continuing Studies was the first to host the festival, however, in the years since, Bloomsday Montreal has become an official non-profit organization.

This year, the festival will celebrate Irish culture as well as the work of James Joyce.

Kicking off June 10th, this free festival features a slew of educational, cultural, and social events.

Festival Bloomsday Montreal’s 2017 program includes walking tours, film screenings, Bloomsday brunch at EVOO, academic panels, pub quizzes, readings, live music, and talks that all unpack Joyce’s most popular novels as well as explore the rich Irish heritage of Montreal.

Most of the events are free, however, those that aren’t are all $15 or less.
