Founded by Alain Simard, Montréal en Lumière is a unique festival which makes Montréal the ultimate gourmet destination. At the very beginning, the ideas that inspired the founder were to energize Montreal during winter months and bring some warmth through festivities, lights, and magic. This year it will be held from February 21st to March 3rd.
This festival is so important for the ones who like to enjoy culinary experiences. Since the very 1st edition, some 575 renowned chefs, wine producers and speakers have taken part of it. It doesn’t matter how much your budget is, there are countless culinary activities for every budget and taste.
Also this festival offers a multitude of free outdoor activities for all, like an incredible program circuit of interactive and luminous works by Illuminart, a wild 110-meter descent in the Milk Urban Slide, free shows, food kiosks and more.
And don’t forget the most awaited night of the year: the Nuit blanche, which assembles 300,000 nighthawks to fully experience a wild urban adventure in more than 150 places throughout the city with 200 cultural activities.
