F1rst class: The ultimate list of Grand Prix parties in Montreal

Jun 8 2022, 6:54 pm

Montreal’s Grand Prix is a big deal for Canadian Formula 1 fanatics. For the rest of us, it’s an excuse to party for three straight days.

This year, from June 16 to 19, the city will come alive on F1 weekend for the first time in over two years. Downtown streets will be packed to the brim with an estimated 300,000 race fans and party people from all over the globe.

But, with so many festivities going on at once, it can be difficult to pinpoint which event gets your engines revved up. While walking up and down Crescent Street is an obvious choice, there are plenty of hidden gem celebrations sprinkled throughout the city.

Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of some of the hottest F1 parties in town.

Maxim Grand Prix Party

With performances by renowned rappers T Pain and Wyclef Jean, you already know this is going to be one for the ages.

Throw in 30,000 square feet of venue space, cocktails, and Formula 1 cars on-site and you’d be hard-pressed to find a better way to spend a Saturday.
