Montreal’s 2015 Summer Festival Season Begins

June 02, 2015

Summer Festival Season is Coming Soon!

Montreal has the reputation of being the festival capital of North America – and for good reason. All through the year you can find exciting festivals to attend. If you plan on visiting Montreal in July you’ll be happy to find out that some of the biggest and most famous festivals run that month; festivals like the Jazz Fest or Osheaga and the insanely funny Just for Laughs. From the vantage point of our hotels downtown Montreal, you can easily access many of these exciting festivals anytime of the year.


Montreal Jazz Festival

This year is the 36th edition, marking a long history as the world’s biggest jazz festival. The Jazz Fest attracts spectators from all around the world. When you add to that the amazing weather we get in June and July; you get the perfect setting for an outdoor festival. This year you can expect to find some of Jazz’s best known performers as well as up-and-coming artists. Takes place from June 26th to July 5th 2015. Our hotel near Ste-Catherine Street provides easy access to the downtown Jazz festival site. Book your room soon!

Orange Julep's Muscle Cars

This is a fun and free activity for anyone interested. If you don’t already know, the Orange Julep is the building shaped like a 40 foot orange…need we say more? You can find it at 7700 Decarie Blvd. and for decades now car lovers meet there on Wednesday nights. It’s a flash from the past of true 1950’s nostalgia. Go for the orange juleps, fast food and muscle cars. Technically it’s not so much a festival, but it’s perfect for July summer fun!

Montreal's Carifiesta Parade

Cultural inclusiveness is the motto; everything Carribean is the theme. Takes place from July 4th to the 6th, 2015. Taking over the downtown Montreal area, this vibrant festival includes the incredible Carifiesta Parade. You’ll find amazing food and fun along with plenty of Latin, West Indian and Afro-American music. If you want to book a hotel near St. Catherine Street, we have rooms and suites with kitchenettes available.
