National Day: a big “human and festive” parade in Montreal

Many festivities are planned throughout the day in the province, on the occasion of Quebec’s National Day. In Montreal, the traditional parade invites Quebecers to join in a true “living fresco” before continuing the party at Maisonneuve Park for a big show.

The Montreal parade will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Rachel Street at the corner of Molson Street and end at the corner of Rachel and Orléans.

Throughout the journey, participants will be able to enjoy activities, traveling sculptures and marvel at the artists of all disciplines who will have to juggle with bad weather, particularly with the wind which risks playing spoilsport.

This year, the parade wants to be lively and without a float. “It’s really going to be a festive, human parade […]. We will feel exhilarated, in a state of happiness,” declared Marie-Anne Alepin, general president of the Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Montréal and the National Day Committee.

“Go get your Quebec flags, dress in blue and white, and join the party!” she added.

The party must conclude at Maisonneuve Park with the show “Une chance qu’on s’a!” from 8 p.m., which will bring together numerous artists on stage, including Claude Dubois, Roxane Bruneau, Patsy Gallant, Queenie, Daniel Lavoie, Kanen, Éléonore Lagacé, Judi Richards, FouKi and Le Vent du Nord.

Around forty songs will be heard until the start of the night.
