About the project Edit

MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE is one of the largest winter festivals in the world, an annual celebration drawing 900,000 fans to experience the joy of Montréal wintertime through a unique program combining performing arts, gastronomy, free outdoor family activities, and a full night of exquisitely original discoveries!

MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE… highlights on gastronomy!
A unique event in the world of delectation, notably for its concept pairing the finest Montréal chefs with the greatest culinary masters from five continents, the gastronomy and wine program of the festival has become an absolute must for foodies. Since 2000, some 400 renowned chefs, wine producers and speakers have taken part, offering unforgettable experiences in such components as the Festival’s Finest Tables, famed for their perfect harmony of food and wine.

Spotlight on the arts!
Music, circus arts, song, theatre, dance…every facet of culture glitters in Montréal during the Arts Program of MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE. The program puts the spotlight on the city with a rich and eclectic program welcoming icons as well as emerging artists from home and abroad. Over the course of 11 days, an array of new discoveries, original creations and dazzling performances become part of the daily fabric of Montréal life.

A Free Outdoor Site that livens the Montréal winter
In February, the festival transforms the Quartier des spectacles and its Place des Festivals—the festive heart of downtown—into the ultimate family destination! The Free Outdoor Site bursts with open-air activities: braziers, shows, activities for children, all showcasing Montréal’s renowned party spirit and flair for entertainment.

An all-nighter in Montréal? Sure thing!
Every year, the festival closes by kicking off the “Nuit Blanche” celebrations around the world. And what a kickoff! The Nuit blanche à Montréal invites locals and tourists to enjoy some 180 mostly free activities, all of them linked by a free shuttle service. Whether onstage or onscreen, in the great outdoors or under the spotlights, in music or in story, installations, exhibitions or dance, the city lights up the night with a full spectrum of fun and festive discoveries for all!
