Montreal’s beachside village, known as Village au Pied-du-Courant will open for the 2018 season on June 1.
Dozens of teams of collaborators and designers have come together to set up this man-made beach village for Montrealers and tourists to join for a view of the St. Lawrence River, Lotto Quebec’s fireworks, and the famous Jacques Cartier Bridge.
The reinvented site is a place for citizens, designers, volunteers, and participants to create a unique and collaborative community.
Oh plus, it’s free to enter the beachside village.
The village’s main goal is to act as a showcase for rising talent in design, visual arts, and the local music scene – all to benefit the community.
The site features sand, food trucks, minibars, hammocks, picnic tables, local art, and live music.
Access to the site is easiest by the green line’s Papineau Metro, by foot or by bicycle (the site has bike lots and a nearby Bixi Station). The site does not feature a parking lot but Rue Fullum has a payable lot.

Time: 4 pm – 9 pm on Thursdays, 5 pm – midnight on Fridays, 3 pm – midnight on Saturdays and 3 pm – 11 pm on Sundays
