What types of events occur during the Comedy Festival in July? Are there free things to see and do, are tickets required, etc.?

Thank you!

There's also a lot of free stuff going on in the streets. Usually, rue St-Denis becomes a pedestrian street and there are lots of street performers, stand-up comedians, there's also the annual Twins Parade... it's just fun to walk around and enjoy the atmosphere!

Travel Tips for Montreal

My fondest memory of Montreal...


My fondest memory of Montreal is not the city but the Olympics. We had standing room tickets down close to the pre-lim Shotput event. There were several atheletes from the old CCCP(USSR) competing. The Coke company must have supplied free refreshments for the competitors. Any way the Russian atheletes found the coolers. They emptied out the equipment bags and filled them with all the Coca Cola they could carry. You must remember at this time Pepsi had a monopoly in the USSR.

Just For Laughs Festival

by levoyageur

Just For Laughs Festival ( ranked second among 100 events in North America by the American Business Association in 2002) is the largest comedy festival in the world. In the different Quartier Latin street, you can see the free and outdoor show and humorist for the four corner of the planets gives show in the different cabaret and theatre in Montreal. From July 10 to July 20.

Just south of St. Catherine...

by gayguy17

Just south of St. Catherine Street, and also on the Metro, you can reach Old Montreal, or Vieux Montreal. An old French section of the city, which still has the original narrow cobble-stone streets, just like in Europe. You will find older buildings that have been preserved and upgraded. You will find charming shops, and the best French restaurants, many where you can sit on the sidewalk cafe and watch the sights and sounds of Montreal pass by. You will find Notre Dame Cathedral, the famous gothic Cathedral where Celine Dion (she's ours) was married. You can also take a Caleche ride, that's a Horse-drawn carriage ride through Old Montreal. During the day, or at night, the street lights and old-world charm make Vieux Montreal a must see experience.

Ask if the person speaks English

by Gwenvar

Ok! The big question...Do people in Montréal speak English? The answer is, No, a beluga whale is translating all of this for me. Since she travels more often then I do, I thought she might pitch in a bit of her knowledge. Just kidding! Don't mind my strange sense of humor, it highjacks my brain once in a while. So I'll leave Hortense the whale go back to her plankton and finish this tip myself...

Kidding aside,
of course we speak English! Not all of us. But a good part. And just as politeness goes, ask the person in front of you if she or he speaks English, first. If not, they'll let you know. And you can move on to the next person, which probably will be able to speak to you. You can tell them Merci! and they will be happy to have helped. Montrealers and Quebecers in general are not shy to speak to strangers, in fact we love to do so.
Montréal is a dynamic North American city. And If we didn't speak the Shakespearean language, we would be in deep trouble. And surprise of all surprises, you will even hear some Montrealers speak English between themselves. And Cantonese, Vietnamese, Portugese, Italian, Lebanese, French, strange French, funny French, elegant French, etc,etc.

Just below, you will find a French/English - English/French internet dictionnary.

Parc Jeanne-Mance

by levoyageur

During the hot days of summer, a lot of Montrealers comes to Parc Jeanne-Mance to play some sports (soccer, beach volley, frisbee). Everybodies are friendly and the ambiance is relax. Sunday, it's ''Les Tams-tams du Mont-Royal'', a big fiesta with tam-tams players.
