This season’s grand opening of Marché des Possibles will kick-off June 23-25 weekend – just in time for Quebec’s biggest summer holiday, the famous St-Jean-Baptiste day. Marché des Possibles is a free, open air mini-festival in the Mile End neighbourhood that happens every weekend from mid-June to mid-August. Each weekend features a variety of socio-cultural programming including live music, film screenings, amazing local food and bar, arts and crafts vendors, free activities for kids, yoga classes, and much more. Located at the end of a quiet street and adjacent a park, there is plenty of green space where you can lounge on the grass and relax.
The curators and brains behind this event are the organizers of POP Montréal, a renowned, not-for-profit international music festival that is entering its 16th year as a celebrated part of Montreal’s music scene. Marché des Possibles is in the same vein – a trendy, fun, yet laid-back showcase of some of the best of Montreal – its independent musicians, artists, artisans, culture, community, and some incredible food and drink. A perfect way to celebrate summer in the city for visitors and locals alike.
