On the occasion of Montréal’s 375th anniversary celebrations, let’s celebrate Montréal’s vivacity: its history and heritage, its spaces, its people and its achievements.

The projects created for Montréal’s 375th will celebrate Montréal’s effervescent character. At different moments throughout the year, the spotlight will shine on the city’s history, culture, arts, sports, technology and gastronomy, particularly during the major gathering planned for the Fête de Montréal activities on May 17. The aim of the 2017 festivities is to look to the future and capitalize on the enthusiasm and positive energy generated by the celebrations to propel Montréal forward.

The four thems as been revealed :

Montréal lights up

December 2016 marks the launch of the festivities. Montréal lights up and shines city-wide: downtown’s skyscrapers, residential neighbourhoods, public spaces, the summit of Mount Royal. It’s a great, magical gathering that brings together everyone who loves Montréal.


Montréal gets moving

Montréal’s northern energy is the inspiration behind the many activities that invite people to play outside over the course of four weekends. Sports, recreational and competitive activities as well as other festivities will be on the program.
