Monkland Grand Prix Festival: June 9-12, 2016

Tired of all the rowdiness and tourist cliches downtown? The same old scene and crowded streets? Or how about not being able to get into ANY restaurants let alone being able to feel safe with the whole family? So were we… that is why we created the family friendly Monkland Grand Prix right in the heart of residential NDG! Finally you can celebrate all that F1 has to offer without the stress and crowds of Downtown. The Monkland Grand Prix is designed for Montrealer’s, by Montrealer’s.

Home to over one hundred businesses and thousands of residents, the Monkland Village (Villa-Maria Metro) has truly transformed over the last decade or so, creating a haven for entrepreneurs, independent restaurants, bakeries and boutiques. It is truly Montreal’s hidden gems, and fastest up-and-coming district!

You are invited to join us to celebrate the Grand Prix in our four-day festival “Monkland Village Grand Prix Festival 2016” on Thursday June 9th, Friday June 10th, Saturday June 11th, and Sunday June 12th. This festival is the first of two special events hitting the Monkland Village in summer 2016 and has brought a breathe of fresh air into the F1 Festival scene at large!

On site we will have merchants, restaurants, food trucks, exotic cars, circus acts, kids zone, DJs, dancing, and many other kinds of entertainment – this festival definitely has something to offer the whole family!

We look forward to continuing our great relationships with merchants, sponsors, press, and all of our festival goers! This year is once again going to provide Montreal a novel neighborhood venue to celebrate culture, entertainment, food, music, diversity and much much more.
