The Gay Village is shaping up to be quite the hub this summer. In addition to the mesmerizing rainbow-coloured installation that is currently hanging above Sainte Catherine Street East, it’s recently been confirmed that art festival and sidewalk sale, Mtl en Arts, will be returning to the Gay Village at the end of this month.

Mtl en Arts is an outdoor art festival that showcases all kinds of art, ranging from visual arts and crafts to performances and interactive installations.

This year, it is taking place between June 28 and July 2, during which time the pedestrian zone of the Gay Village will become home to over 150 artists.

Montrealers will be free to roam this artistic sidewalk sale of sorts and marvel at all kinds of artwork, as well as speak with the artists first hand.

The festival will also include creative workshops for children, live painting demonstrations, and musical performances.

Though the official 2017 scheduled has yet to be released, rest assured that there is guaranteed to be some pretty cool art at this outdoor street festival.
