A giant FREE urban street fair is taking over Mont Royal this weekend

Aug 22 2019, 10:04 am

As the days in August start to dwindle down, Mont-Royal Avenue will be hosting an eventful, free urban street fair to remind Montrealers that summer isn’t yet over.

The annual open-air market, RU, will play host to a wide range of artists, murals, concerts, DJs, art installations, digital art, contemporary dance, and even a modern zoo.

During the four-day festival, RU will close Mont-Royal Avenue to vehicular traffic from Boulevard Saint- Laurent to Rue Fullum, giving Montrealers a 2 km of an outdoor street fair.

The street festival will be highlighted by RU’s ‘M√ČTAFLORE,’ an open-air “psychedelic” art gallery that features¬†sculptures, paintings, digital art, murals, and performance pieces by a collection of local artists.

The¬†M√ČTAFLORE gallery will also have a beer garden, presented by¬†La bi√®re Belle Gueule¬†and DJ sets.

Because you know, it’s not a street fair until there’s live music and booze.

RU recently shared a video of last year’s street fair to help you get in the mood for this weekend’s edition:
