Slowly but surely, after a rain-filled spring, it’s beginning to look a lot more like summer.
Or, at least, it will be soon.
It’s easier to be optimistic when Montreal’s popular beachside village is re-opening in just over a month. Village a Pied-du-Courant, the city’s beautiful park and urban beach will return in full swing on Friday, June 1, 2018.
Facing the St. Lawrence River and found just at the foot of the Jaques Cartier Bridge, the urban beach is built every year by more than fifty local architects, designers, and artists.
Originating in 2014, entering its fifth consecutive year, the beach promotes accessibility and attempts to foster community bonding and creativity.
Following suit with festivities in prior years, there promises to be live music, food trucks, and weekly events to ensure that there’s always something to do and see.
Last year’s schedule included brunches, special performances, and yoga sessions, among other events.
Event organizers remind that patrons are welcome to bring their own food and their pets on-site at any time, however, pets must be leashed and alcoholic beverages and glass containers will not be permitted. Alcohol can be purchased at the bar and canteen.
Sports equipment will also be available to rent on-site but must be paid for with cash. There will be an ATM at the venue.
