Great place to stroll and I was fortunate to be there during the Cirque fest! Short circus acts along the street and lively crowds.

Montreal may be the true city that never sleeps. This area was bustling until the latest hours of the day, so much so that it made traffic difficult to navigate through. The energy of the city, though, is infectious!

At just about any time of year there is something going on here! Even in between the festivals they have events at the Quartier des Spectacles!

I didn't really understand what the Quartier des spectacles was. They close the streets to car traffic and make several magic shows, concerts, and plain entertainment in one street. It's very enjoyable. It's free of course.

We were there while the jazz festival was going on. The ambience is great and everybody sits to watch what is going on. The importance of the festival is known worldwide and they have the greatest jazz players.

The City of Montreal had the great idea to dedicate one street to the festivals. During the off times the area is just a normal street. I believe that it is Rue Balmoral. For the festivals the street lights get re-positioned... More
