The ultimate list of Grand Prix parties in Montreal

Jun 7 2023, 1:30 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 18, the city will again come alive on F1 weekend. Downtown streets will be packed to the brim with an estimated 300,000 race fans, celebrities, 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, plenty of hidden gem celebrations are sprinkled throughout the city.

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

While the bustling streets are open to the public from Thursday to Sunday, people should arrive earlier than later as it will be quite packed.
