Zoe's Ultimate Guide to July in Montreal: Laughs, Movies, and Good Food

Hey, beautiful people! It's Zoe here, your go-to gal for all things fabulous in Montreal. I've got the lowdown on what to do in our gorgeous city this July, and trust me, it's going to be epic. So, grab your calendar, mark these dates, and let's make some unforgettable memories together!

Right around the corner from the buzz of Ste-Catherine Street, MSL is located in a dream spot for students who thrive on a mix of food, festivals, and good movies. Having spent the last three years both studying and diving deep into Montreal's vibrant culture, I've pretty much experienced every event and eatery you can think of. Here’s my go-to list for unforgettable eats, must-see festivals, and jaw dropping movies that won’t break the bank. So, lace up your sneakers—everything is just a stroll away, meaning more cash in your pocket for that extra treat or concert ticket. Let’s dive into the best of Montreal!

Just for Laughs Festival: Laugh Till You Drop

Need a good belly laugh? The Just for Laughs Festival is just the tonic. This isn’t just any comedy festival, folks – it’s THE comedy festival. The crème de la crème of comedians gather here to make you laugh so hard you'll cry. Grab your pals, snag some tickets, and prepare for an ab workout like no other.

Alright, movie lovers, this one’s for you. The Fantasia International Film Festival is where horror, fantasy, and sci-fi films come out to play. From international gems to indie flicks, it’s a cinematic feast that’ll have you on the edge of your seat. Popcorn, anyone?

Montreal Cirque Festival: A Circus Extravaganza

Oh, the Cirque Festival – where gravity-defying acts and breathtaking performances collide. If you love the circus (and who doesn’t?), this festival will blow your mind. From acrobats to aerial artists, it’s a whirlwind of wonder you won’t want to miss. 

Street Festivals and Markets: Shop Til You Drop

From the International des Arts de la Marionnette to bustling street markets, July in Montreal is a shopper’s paradise. 

My top 3: 

Jean-Talon Market : dive into one of North America's largest public markets with vibrant produce, exotic spices, and delectable pastries. 

Mural Festival: Stroll down St-Laurent Boulevard and watch street artists transform walls into vibrant murals. 

Atwater Market: Known for its butchers, cheesemongers, and fresh bread, this market is a foodie’s paradise.
