Most people who live and work in the city of Montreal spend a great part of the year looking forward to this season of fun in the sun and festivals for all tastes. The city oozes an electric energy and there is something new to experience everyday. What more can we ask for, you say? “Sun!” to make sure we don’t miss out on any of the available entertainment right outside our door.

There is nothing like ending a work day with a nice glass of champagne (or a cold beer for the boys) on an old port terrace, and at Prospek, we looooooove to do that. And why not add to the fun of summer by following this cold drink with a nice jazz show under the stars or fireworks in the sky.

There is a very long list of festivals in Montreal during the months of June and July and everyone at Prospek has their favorite ;). Since summer is meant to be enjoyed to its fullest (especially when it only lasts a month and a half), below you’ll find a short list of our favorite festivals and some videos to get you excited!!! We also suggested some great spots where you can find that cold drink we are all looking for at 5pm :). You might even see one of us in the crowd!
