This event gives Montrealers from all backgrounds the chance to show off their talents, culture and traditions through a variety of music, dance, and culinary presentations. Presented by Loto-Quebec, this event takes place over two weekends: July 5-6 and July 12-13, 2014.

Takes place in the Parc Jean-Drapeau.
